Seb (transliteration: sb) is a hypothetical ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the 13th Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period. He is proposed by Danish Egyptologist Kim Ryholt as a descendant of Hor I, the supposed son of Djedkheperu, and father of Kay. Ryholt bases this on his reading of the Seb part of Kay's nomen as a patronym. Seb-Kay thus meaning "Seb's son Kay".[1] Ryholt's interpretation is considered daring and controversial by some egyptologists.
