Bebiankh in Wikipedia
Seuserenre Bebiankh was a native Ancient Egyptian king of the
16th Theban dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period and
the successor of king Semenre. He is assigned a reign of 12
years in the Turin Canon. Seuserenre is principally known
by a stela found at Gebel Zeit that attests to mining activity
conducted in this area by the Red Sea during his reign and
preserves his royal nomen Bebiankh. He is also known to
have an extension to the Temple of Medamud. He was
succeeded by a poorly known king named Sekhemre Shedwast.
The German Egyptologist Jürgen von Beckerath has attributed an
anonymous Year 11 Sothic inscription from Gebel Tjauti Rock
inscription No.11—which has been dated to the period around
1593-1590 BC deep within the Second Intermediate Period—to
king Seuserenre. If correct, this would place
Seuserenre's reign in the period from 1603 or 1600 BC to 1591
or 1588 BC. His prenomen, Seuserenre, means "The One Whom Re
Causes to be Strong."
