Ankhwennefer

(reigned c. 199–186 BC)
   The Greek form of his name is Chaonnophris, previously wrongly read as Anchmachis. Rebel ruler in the south during the reign of Ptolemy V. He succeeded Harwennefer and was able to regain Thebes, controlling as far north as Asyut. Ankhwennefer was driven from Thebes in 191 BC and finally defeated and captured in battle in 186 BC. His ultimate fate is unknown.
