A. The Dates in the Kahun Papyri.
The information as to the dates of the Xllth
and early Xlllth Dynasty kings preserved in
the Turin Papyrus is so extensive and interest-
ing, that a fresh transcription of that part
of the document may well serve as the basis
of the following note. I transcribe from
Wilkinson's copy, Hieratic Papyrus of Kings,
at Turin, which is a revision of that
Lepsius, Auswahl, and contains many small
improvements on the latter.
For the Xlth Dynasty the Turin Papyrus
gives us six kings only, ending with Xeb'kherRa
(Mentuhetep), and Sanklrka-Ra (Mentuhetep).
Then comes a much mutilated line that once
contained a summation of the numbers of
kings and years. On this follows the heading
for the Xllth Dynasty.
