Manetho's partial stupor was relieved by hot grog and the cook's stove.
Menes (the first King of the first dynasty on Manetho's list) is at their head.
As has been remarked, Manetho numbers at least 284 kings to the eighteenth dynasty.
I have also made a refutation of Manetho and Cheremon, and of certain others of our enemies.
Manetho had given a statement, according to which Mena must have lived nearly six thousand years before the Christian era.
The loss of his work is still more to be lamented than that of Manetho.
Undoubtedly Manetho loved the man,—but death was not always the worst of ills in Manetho's philosophy.
The list of Manetho describes him as not being the son of his predecessor.
Knowing what he now did, it required no great stretch of ingenuity to unravel Manetho's secret.
These kings were apparently the ninth and tenth dynasties of Manetho.
