Wetjes-Hor was the second Nome of Upper Egypt. Its major population center, modern Edfu was called Behdet and Djeba in ancient times. Its Middle Kingdom cemetery is a source of much information about the burial practices of commoners in Middle Kingdom Egypt. The Old Kingdom governor, Izi, whose Mastaba is in Edfu's necropolis, was worshiped as a minor god during later times.
