King Djet



king Djet is an Egyptian pharaoh and fourth king of the First Dynasty. During his reign he initiated a mining policy in search of minerals; His name was found carved into a rock on one of the roads that connected Edfu to the Red Sea. He found the famous painting that bears his name, which is currently kept in the Louvre Museum in Paris.


Manetho states that during the reign of this king, there was a great famine but the Palermo Stone, which reports the flood levels of the Nile (circumstance closely linked to the lack of the wealth of agricultural production), is broken precisely in correspondence with the reign of Djet.

Based on the rarity of elements in the archaeological documentation, which could indicate the lesser importance of this king compared to others of the first dynasty, many scholars believe that the duration of the reign of Djet is to be estimated between five and ten years unlike what Manetho seems to attribute to him.

King Djet is known, with certainty, of the burial in the necropolis of Umm El Qa'ab, near Abydos, (tomb Z) while what is traditionally associated with him in Saqqara is probably the mastaba of a high official of the court.

Outside the tomb,  there was a stele erected so the visitors could pay tribute to the dead king. This famous 1.43 m tall stele is better known as the Stele of the Serpent King and is now located at the Louvre.
