Nanefer-ka-ptah was the son of Merneptah and was made famous for magical Egyptian stories. He is said to have found the magical books of the god Thoth. He then made a copy of the book, washed it away with beer and then drank the beer. He thought that this would have allowed him to digest all of the printed material as a result. He was buried at Coptos.
