This paper argues in detail for the identification of Peftjauawybast, King of Nen-nesut (fl. 728/720 BC1 ), with Peftjauawybast, High Priest of Ptah in Memphis (fl. c. 790-780 BC2 ), known from the Apis stela of year 28 of Shoshenq III. This identification ties in with a significant lowering of the accepted dates for the kings from Shoshenq III, Osorkon III and Takeloth III to Shoshenq V, and the material culture associated with them. Such a shift seems to be supported by stylistic and genealogical evidence. As a consequence, it is further suggested that the Master of Shipping at Nen-nesut, Pediese i, was perhaps related by descent and marriage to the family of the High Priests of Memphis and King Peftjauawybast.
