d0, stela of raneb Metropolitan NY Nov-2005 0428
Stela of Raneb, 2nd King of 2nd Dynasty (2890-2686  BC), reported to be from Mit Rahina, Memphis and probably from Raneb's tomb at Saqqara. This is the earliest known granite relief-carving and shows Raneb's horus name in a Serekh (palace facade). Raneb which probably translates to Ra-is-my-Lord is the first mention of the sun god Ra of Heliopolis.
