Hi Marianne

Rich Mc Quillen enumerates (Aug. 22. 2018) in his list of Eratosthenes Column I # 5 the Pharao Pemphos.

You wrote : "5. Is a king called Shemsu-Heru-sefi or 'Semempses', which means 'descendent of Heracles'. 'Smsw' means 'follower' ... literally ... 'the son who follows'."
If have some questions concerning this King "Semempses" (Shemsu-Heru-sefi). Does the name "Semempses" takes aim at Pharao Smendes ? Is it allowed to say, that Pharao Smendes was a "follower of Herakles" ?
I don't know anything about the mentioned "Semempses". Please help me and give me some hints about him and a clue concerning his period in the time of ancient egypt.

Kind regards
Ecki

            Then you can check it against the Abydos List https://pharaoh.se/abydos-king-list and you'll see "Smsw" at #7. If you could real hieroglyphs, it would become clear why there are two kings called... more
