(fl. 1945–1950 BC)
   Vizier of Amenemhat I and Senusret I of Dynasty 12. He is attested in office toward the end of the reign of Amenemhat I and was presumably one of the most powerful officials of the period. He was buried in a tomb near the pyramid of Amenemhat I at Lisht; however, his family is cursed in the execration texts, so it is speculated that they eventually fell from power.
