Biography[edit]

The exact dates of his reign are unknown. It started possibly around 815 BC, or alternatively in the final couple of years of his father's reign; one authority provides the dates circa 816 to 800 BC.[2] His highest date is a regnal year 12 found carved in an inscription on the roof of the Khonsu Temple at Karnak.[3] A year 9 is also attested for him on the roof of the temple. Helen Jacquet-Gordon published a transcription Iuput I's Years 9 and 12 of the Khonsu temple graffito, where it is named "Graffito 244" and "Graffito 245A-B".[3]
