"You're totally right about Orus and other names."
-- We have a possible lead from the Greeks on an Orus who was a king, about at that time.

"Orus 1. The first king of the Troezenians, whose land was then called Oraea. He was succeeded by Althepus. Orus 1 had a daughter Leis who consorted with Poseidon [see Troezen] [Pau.2.30.5]."

This is a vague reference; the name does look like the Egyptian Horus. This could be some commander/ship captain that is being substituted back into Manetho. It could be a lost pharaoh name, referenced by some artwork. It could be a lot of speculative ideas.
