Sobeknakht

(fl. 1560 BC)
   Governor of Elkab and possibly Hierakonpolis during Dynasty 17. He is known principally from his tomb, which was partially published in 1896. Avessel inscribed with his name has been found in a tomb at Kerma. A recent reexamination of his burial site discovered an inscription that recounts a raid by invaders from Kush in the vicinity of Elkab and thus explains the presence of the vessel in the Kushite capital as loot.
