Chapter Summary

Attribution of the chapel to the first part of the reign of Nebhepetre Mentuhotep is suggested both by its style and by the use of the king's so-called "second" titulary, utilised from Year 14 to Year 31 of his reign. All agree in identifying the two styles as "pre-" and "post-unification", and attribute the reliefs at Gebelein, the Dendereh chapel, the shrines of the queens and the first stage of the temple of Mentuhotep at Deir el-Bahari to the "pre-unification" style. In "post-unification" style and accompanied by the third titulary of Mentuhotep are the reliefs of the temple at Abydos, two offering tables from Dendereh, an offering table from Deir el-Bahari, the subsequent stages of the funerary temple and shrine of Queen Neferu at Deir el-Bahari.
