| Nepherites I |
Nefaarud I or Nayfraurud I are just multiple names for Nepherites I. He was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of Memphis and founded the 29th Dynasty.
Rumor has it that Nepherites was a general from the deltaic city of Mendes who, in the autumn of 399 BC, rose up against the current pharoah, Amyrtaeus, by killing him in open battle.
Nepherites used his names to demonstrate that he wanted his rule to resemble the earlier 'golden age' of Egyptian History
Nepherites was mummified after his death in 393 BC. He was placed in a large limestone sarcophagus with shabtis bearing his name. The tomb was believed to have been destroyed by the Persians long ago, apparently not however.
Fish specimens were also found in ceramic vessels on the funeral site. This often indicate that the site was once used by a temple of the fish-goddess Hatmehyt
Nepherites was found by a team from University of Toronto and University of Washington
