How to use Narmer in a sentence
Narmer and Khsekhemui are, as we shall see, two of the first monarchs of all Egypt.
It is of exactly similar workmanship to that of Narmer, and is no doubt a fragment of another monument of that king.
Khsekhemui probably lived later than Narmer, and we may suppose that his conquest was in reality a re-conquest.
Narmer is therefore the last of the ancient kings of Hierakonpolis, the last of Manetho's "Spirits."
This may be the case with Narmer, or, as his name ought possibly to be read, Betjumer.
