Sekheperenre (transliteration: s-ḫpr-n-rꜤ, meaning: "Re causes His Manifestation") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the Fourteenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period. He was of Canaanite origin and ruled from Avaris over the eastern and possibly western Nile Delta in Lower Egypt, some time during the first half of the 17th century BC.[2] Sekheperenre's throne name is preserved in the Turin King List (Col 8. Line 16 as per Gardiner).[3] His reign length is recorded as 0 years, 2 months and 1-5 days.[1]

Attestation[]

Sekheperenre is one of only four 14th Dynasty pharaohs listed in the Turin Canon to have left any attestation (the others being Nehesy, Merdjefare and Nebsenre). Indeed, Sekheperenre is attested by a single scarab-seal from an unknown provenance bearing his prenomen. It was donated by A.S. Hunt, an English papyrologist, to the Ashmolean Museum.[1][4]
