Neferkamin Anu may have been the second king of the eighth dynasty of ancient Egypt during the First Intermediate Period. As such he would have reigned over the Memphite region. His name is attested on the Abydos King List, and also in the Turin Canon of Kings where he is attributed a reign of 2 years, 1 month and 1 day.[4][5] Any detail about Neferkamin's reign is lost in a lacuna of the Turin Canon.
