Poti-Phera


Resource Toolbox

po - tif´e - ra ( פרע פּוטי , pōṭı̄ phera‛ ; Egyptian Padipara , "the (one) given of the sun-god"; compare Hebrew Nathaniel, "the gift of God," Genesis 41:45 , Genesis 41:50 ; Genesis 46:20 ): There is no certain evidence from Egypt that this name was in existence until the XXII nd Dynasty, about 950 BC. But names of the Hyksos period, and, indeed, any kind of Hyksos inscriptions, are so scarce on account of the destruction of Hyksos monuments by the Egyptians of later times that the absence of such names is really no evidence on the subject. The fact that this name has not been discovered earlier than 950 BC does not give any warrant for the claim that the narrative is of a late date.
