Pepi II (2284 BC – after 2247 BC, probably either c. 2216 or c. 2184 BC[2][note 1]) wis a pharaoh o the Saxt Dynasty in Egyp's Auld Kinrick who reigned frae c. 2278 BC.

Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. The year 2247 BC is a conservative lawer estimate based on the nummer o cattle coonts (thirty-ane) that occurred during the pharaoh's reign, if coonts are assumed tae hae been taken annually. Thou Egyptian cattle coonts are maist eften thocht tae hae taken place biennially, late Auld Kinrick reigns micht hae been an exception tae the rule.[4] If thay indeed war taken every twa years, then the pharaoh reigned for aboot 62 years, till aroond 2212 BC. Pepi II is eften mentioned as the langest reignin monarch in History based on accoonts frae the late 2nt millennium BC Turin canon an the 3rd century BC history o Egyp bi Manetho. Earlier soorces upon which Manetho's estimate an the Turin canon are based are lost.
