Collection: Pharaohs of the Ninth Dynasty of Egypt
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Setut[2] or Senen...[1] was a pharaoh of the 9th Dynasty of ancient Egypt (between 2160 and 2130 BCE, during the First Intermediate Period).[2]

There is no contemporary archaeological find attesting the existence of this ruler since he is definitely known only by the Turin King List where his incomplete name Senen[...] appears in position 4.22. He should have reigned from Herakleopolis after Nebkaure Khety or Wahkare Khety,[3] being one of the ephemeral rulers of the late 9th Dynasty. He was succeeded by an unknown king of the same dynasty.[2][4]
