Wahibre Ibiau (throne name: Wahibre; birth name: Ibiau) was an Egyptian king of the 13th Dynasty, who reigned ca. 1670 BC for 10 years 8 months and 29 days according to the Turin King List.

Attestations[edit]

Despite a relatively long reign for the period, Wahibre Ibiau is known from only a few objects. Wahibre is mostly attested by scarab seals bearing his name.[1] He is also named on the stela of an official named Sahathor, probably from Thebes.[2] Finally, a fragment of fayence from El-Lahun mentions this king.[3]
