Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Sened


Second Dynasty

The probable predecessor of King Peribsen towards the end of the Second Dynasty, Sened would be entirely unknown were it not for an inscription of the Fourth Dynasty recording that a priest, Sheri, served his cult at Saqqara, as he did that of Peribsen. That Sened's cult survived until the Pyramid Age suggests that he was considered to be of some status in the line of kings. It is possible that his tomb may have been obliterated by the building of the Causeway and Mortuary Temple of King Unas at the end of the Fifth Dynasty.
