Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Seuserenre Bebiankh was a native Ancient Egyptian king of the 16th Theban dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period and, according to Kim Ryholt, the successor of king Semenre. He is assigned a reign of 12 years in the Turin Canon (11.8).[1] Seuserenre is principally known by a stela found at Gebel Zeit that attests to mining activity conducted in this area by the Red Sea during his reign and preserves his royal nomen Bebiankh.[2] This modest stela records this king's activities in the Gebel Zeit galena mines.[3] He is also known to have built an extension to the Temple of Medamud.[4] Bebiankh's nomen was also found on a dagger found in Naqada and now in the British Museum, under the catalog number BM EA 66062.[1]

Bebiankh was succeeded either by a poorly known king named Sekhemre Shedwast or by the equally shadowy ruler Seneferankhre Pepi III.[5]
