Rahotep in Wikipedia
Rahotep (or more properly Sekhenrewahkhaw Rahotep) was an
Egyptian king who reigned during the Second Intermediate
Period, when Egypt was ruled by multiple kings. Kim Ryholt, in
his book on the Political Situation in Egypt, suggests that
Rahotep was the first king of the 17th Dynasty. Rahotep is
well known from a stele found at Koptos reporting the
restoration of the temple. Otherwise he is only known from
the stela of an official and from the bow of a king's son.
His name appears in the Karnak king list.
