|Senwosret II||also spelt|
|Sesostris II in Greek|
|1992 - 1978 BC||Reign: 14 years|
Senwosret II had a reign that's disputable in length and the opinions vary from five years to almost twenty. Nevertheless his reign is considered to have been peaceful and no military actions are recorded during his time in office, (though some probably took place).
In the picture left he is seen with the typical broad cheekbones that was running in his family together with the old fashion way of making the ears stan- ding out and large. For some reason he left the region around Lisht and Dahshur and built his pyramid 50 km to the south at Lahun close to the Faiyum basin, where he continued large irrigation projects begun by his father.
