The most ancient literary text in the collection of the State Museum of Fine Arts is a label with the name
of King Hor-Aha (Hor the Fighter) from the 1st dynasty. A label is a small flat ivory plate that was
attached to a sacrificial vessel in a tomb and contained the king's name, geographical name, or the names
of the king's estates.
A label from the tomb of Hor-Aha has an inscription "Hor the Fighter with a merciful heart". Many
scientists believe that Hor-Aha was the legendary King Menes that unified Upper and Lower Egypt.
