Lovecraft references Nephren-Ka. Also known as the Black

Pharaoh, the last Egyptian pharaoh of the

Third Dynasty. Nephren-Ka began a worship

of Nyarlathotep and birthed the ideas that

later gave way to the Starry Wisdom that

swept through Egypt and the world. In the

course of this worship, he acquired the

Shining Trapezohedron from merchants of

Khem. Once in his possession, he built a

dark temple around it, committing

sacrifices to the Haunter of the Dark in

exchange for the creature’s limitless

knowledge. It was this exchange that

ultimately brought Nephren-Ka’s reign to an

end. Such were his deeds that his name was

struck from the monuments and other

records.
