Hor was an Egyptianmarker king of the 13th Dynasty. He appears in the Turin King List as Au-ib-RĂȘ. He most likely reigned only for a short time, not long enough to prepare a pyramid, which was in this dynasty still the common burial place for kings.

Hor is mainly known from his burial in a shaft tombmarker found at Dahshurmarker next to the pyramidmarker of king Amenemhat III. The tomb was found essentially intact and still contained the partly gilded coffin of the king, a naos with a statue, some jewelry, the canopic box with canopic vessels, two inscribed stelae and several other objects.

Next to the burial of the king was found the undisturbed tomb of the 'king's daughter' Nubhetepti-khered. She was likely a daughter of King Hor.

Pharaoh Hor was quite an insignificant ruler. The common photo is of a wooden statue of him. He was believed to have seven months of rule and this would have happened around the year 1760 BC.

This correspond very well to archaeological remains since he didn't have time to build a tomb of his own. His fame comes from the wooden statue of him.
