Another Rameses, named User-mat-Ra Se-cheper-en-Ra, seems to have reigned at about the same period with Heqmat-Ra Rameses; for a couple of inscriptions by the same official, Amen-necht, are dated in year 4 of Heq-mat-Ra and year 4 of Se-cheper-en-Rab. And perhaps Se-cheper-en-Ra was king concurrently with Heq-mat-Ra; being followed on his throne by Se-cha-en-Ra, while Heq-mat-Ra was followed by Nefer-ka-Ra. The names of both these kings, Se-cheper-en-Ra and Heq-mat-Ra, appear upon the tomb of king Neb-mat-Ra Rameses0. Se-cheper-en-Ra's inscriptions are carved upon the entrance; and as they have partly been effaced by Neb-mat-Ra's inscriptions, the probabilities are that Secheper-en-Ra began this tomb before the time of Neb-mat-Ra. Heq-mat-Ra's inscriptions are carved in the interior, and may be taken to show that he also had a hand in the construction of the tomb. On an obelisk, however, Neb-mat-Ra's cartouches have been converted into Heq-mat-Ra'sd; and this looks as though Heq-mat-Ra was reigning after Neb-mat-Ra. The fact may be that these three kings all claimed the throne together; and sometimes one of them, and sometimes another, had the power to enforce his claim. Neb-mat-Ra Rameses was the second son of the Usermat-Ra Rameses whose epithets were Amen-meri and HeqAnnu, more
