Ben-Tor's papers have mixed merits. Early on, she showed that Khyan was early among the Hyksos. On the other hand, her refusal to accept clear 14C chronological evidence confuses the issues. H÷flmayer's contribution in the same Proceedings is much more convincing. Note also Forstner-MŘller's own contribution, which clearly shows that she is on the way to accept the facts, in spite of the long shadow of Bietak.

Ryholt's reasons for reading 140+X (X less than 10) are fully illustrated in Schneider's paper on Khayan's place in history (on academia), p. 10-11.

Werner

    Schneider suggests this, because of a allegedly synchronism between Khyan and Sobekhotep IV (Dyn. 13). But there are reasons to contradict this, see https://imjnet.academia.edu/DaphnaBenTor Regards... more
