Stele of Raneb.

King of Egypt, 2nd king of the 2nd Dynasty, ruling 2852-2813 BCE, 39 years. Dating is derived from the work of Manetho.
Manetho claims that Raned introduced the cult of the sacred goat of Mendes and the cult of the sacred bull Mnevis at Heliopolis. A third cult, the one of Apis at Memphis, also attributed by Manetho, seem to be wrong, judged from modern research.
