Abydos King’s List

Panoramio - Photo of Abydos King List

The Abydos King List, is a list of the names of seventy-six kings of Ancient KMT, found on a wall of the Temple of Seti I at Abydos. It consists of three rows of thirty-eight cartouches (borders enclosing the name of a king) in each row. The upper two rows contain names of the kings, while the third row merely repeats Seti I’s throne name and praenomen.

The start of the king list, showing Seti and his son – Ramesses II – on the way to making an offering to Ptah-Seker-Ausar, on behalf of their 72 ancestors – the contents of the king list. Ramesses is depicted holding censers.
