Nekhen /ˈnɛkən/ or Hieraconpolis (/ˌhaɪərə kɒnpəlɨs/; Ancient Greek: Ἱεράκων πόλις hierakōn polis, "city of hawks",[1] Arabic: الكوم الأحمر‎, Al-Kom Al-Aħmar, "red mound"[2]) was the religious and political capital of Upper Egypt at the end of the Predynastic period (c. 3200 – 3100 BC) and probably, also during the Early Dynastic Period (c. 3100 – 2686 BC). Some authors suggest occupation dates that should begin thousands of years earlier.
