Of these twenty-two kings six are only known from Abydos, and
five are only known from clay sealings. No doubt when the mass of
fragments gathered together by M. Amelineau come to be made public,
much more information may be gleaned; and when the pottery of all
the tombs at Abydos is thoroughly studied comparatively and with the
pottery from other sites, we shall be on the high road to some orderly
classification, which is as yet impossible. Here I have only attempted a
general sequence from vague considerations, classing together those
kings of whom the remains are alike ; and this list is a mere bulletin
of known names which may, we hope, be soon superseded by fresh
W. M. Flinders Petrie.
