A new reconstruction of the Late Old Kingdom section in the Turin King-list, based on an examination of the fibres, is presented together with a discussion of the historical implications concerning the kings in question. Of particular importance is the fact that the supposed female ruler Nitocris can be shown to be non-existent. The tradition of the king-list is also touched upon, with special attention being paid to the question of lacunae in the original.
