Perneb

The name of a “son of the king” was found on several clay seals inside Gallery B at Saqqara, a tomb believed to have belonged to Horus Hotepsehemwi or, perhaps somewhat less likely, to his successor, Horus Nebre. As the “son of a king”, his father probably was Hotepsekhemwi or Nebre, if Gallery B belonged to Nebre.

He was a priest of the Lower-Egyptian god Sopdu, who seems to have held some importance during the early 2nd Dynasty.
