[1] PP IX 5370, but there identified with his father PP III 5361. For the argument deducing his existence from statue Alexandria 27806 see discussion under Neferibre and D. Devauchelle, CdE 58 (1983) 135, 142. Ý

[2] Statue Alexandria 27806, see H. S. K. Bakhry, MDAIK 28 (1972) 75 and PP IX 5370. Ý

[3] Statue Alexandria 27806, see discussion under Neferibre. Ý

[4] Not named on our only source, statue Alexandria 27806. D. Devauchelle, CdE 58 (1983) 135, 143 supposes him to be a son of Nefersobek, without giving a reason. Presumably this is because she was also the mother of his brother and successor Anemhor II. Ý

[5] Because he was presumably older than his brother and successor Anemhor II, born in that year. Ý

[6] Terminus post quem: the earliest accession date of his father, Nesisti-Pedubast. Terminus ante quem: the terminus ante quem of his father's date of death. Ý
