Abstract

The evidence for the whole of dynasty XXIX is confusing, and one of the principal issues has been the relative order of the kings. In the case of Psammuthis and Hakoris there is the well-known discrepancy between the versions of Manetho on the one hand and the Demotic Chronicle on the other. In this paper the author analyses the surviving demotic contracts from the reign of Hakoris, and concludes that the short reign of Psammuthis fits best into the break between the former's second and third years; he also offers an analysis of the epithet wḥm-ḫ' used by Hakoris in his protocols, and suggests a new interpretation of the period as a whole.
