Etymology of the name APEPI.
Meaning of the baby name APEPI.


APEPI.  Apepi I., a king of the Hykshos dynasty, of whose reign no particulars are known.  Apepi II., a king of the Hykshos dynasty, under whose government the patriarch Joseph is, by the larger number of Egyptologists, believed to have entered Egypt.  He was a wise and politic king, and his court was almost entirely Egyptian.  Towards the close of his reign, he by force introduced the sole worship of the Syrian deity Set or Sutech, and commanded Tiakken or Raskenen Takuna, king of Thebes, one of his vassals, to set an example of adoration.  This the native Egyptian king refused to do and a war of resentment was the consequence, a war which continued during the life of Apepi, and ended in the expulsion of the Shepherds and the restoration of the old dynasties.  A beautiful bust of this monarch has been recently found in making the excavations for the Suez Canal, and it is now the chief ornament of the Boulaq Museum.  Apepi was the Apophis of the Greeks. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
