En Besor

En Besor

En-Besor is located in southern Israel.

Jar-stoppers have been uncovered here possibly with the names of king's or officials of the First or Second Dynasty, though these excavation may have been illicit.[1] And it is known that a First Dynasty 'residency' here was created to exploit the resources in this area. Pottery stylistically may show Hor-Aha started this, though partial preserved royal names may state a later date.[2]
