Abstract

A recent proposition by R. Morkot and P. James to shorten the period from the start of the Twenty-second until the end of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty prompted the author to investigate what unquestionable chronological data we have, what are the theories and suppositions founded on those data and how these theories and suppositions have been substantiated. In the author’s view it may be concluded from this investigation not only that the arguments advanced by Morkot and James are inappropriate to substantiate the chronological reduction advocated by them, but also that on historical considerations their theory is untenable.
