Apepi


Apepi
(reigned c. 1585–1550 BC)
   The Greek form of his name is Apophis. Throne name Aawoserre. Last or penultimate Hyksos ruler of Dynasty 15. He is attested as an opponent of the rulers of Thebes, Tao, andKamose. Apepi tried to fashion an alliance with the ruler of Kush against the Thebans, but this attempt apparently failed. It is not clear whether he was still reigning when his capital, Avaris, fell to the Theban forces under Ahmose I. Two other throne names, Aakenenre and Nebkhepeshre, are associated with Apepi and may refer to different monarchs or more likely to the same man who changed his throne name. He may have been briefly succeeded by Khamudy, the last of the dynasty.
