A cartouche is an oval contour, which indicates that the listed name belongs to the Egyptian ruler.
The sinusita II known that it was under his rule was built one of the first pyramids – Lahun. This finding attests to the interest of the ruler to Herisau, patron of fertility, water, hunting and fishing, and the oasis of Fayoum, where was erected the sanctuary of this deity.
