Intef III

(Nakjtnebtepnefer)

2069 - 2060 BC

 

 A very shadowy figure - the picture shows one of the few inscriptions of him:

The Stela of Nakhtnebtepnefer (Intef III) from Wadi Shaft el-Rigal.

Mentuhotep II is shown twice the height of that of the other figures - including that of Intef III, this may be mean to show that Mentuhotep II was greater than his predecessor.

Also shown are Mentuhotep II's mother (Queen Iah), standing behind him, and also the Chancellor Khety.
