https://pharaoh.se/eratosthenes-king-list

Every couple of years, I take a shot at deciphering this list. Last night, I finally figured it out. Basically, there are two columns. This seems to be at least partially because of the third intermediate period.

Column 1 is 1-23: From Amenemope(Menes) to Amyrtaios.
Column 2 is 24-38: From Amenemope(Ousimares) to Amyrtaios.
Pharaohs skipped in Column 1, appear in Column 2.

Eratosthenes_King_List

The red ones are a little bit uncertain.
11. Sirios? - unknown
13. Rhauosis? - unknown
22. Nitokris - position indicates Nectanebo I
30. Soikounios looks like orsorkon.
31. Peteathyres looks like Shebitku - th for sh, p for b
32. Stammenemes I - Tantamani
33. Stammenemes II - His son - Atlanersa?
37. Phruoro - Position closest to DariusII - ph for d?

      Sorry to rain on your parade, Rich, but the kinglist of Eratosthenes can only be deciphered by someone who knows the Egyptian language--for obvious reasons. 1. Menes [first on everybody's list] 2.... more

      It's possible that #1 Menes was instead: Amenemnisu and #38 Amouthartaios was instead Teos. Sistoikhermes for Amasis is a guess, that should have been red. That could have been PsamtikII.
