|Nepherites I (Nef'aurud)|
Nepherites I was the first ruler of the Twenty-ninth Dynasty. Nepherites I sent a gift to the
Spartans after an allegiance had been entered into with Sparta against Persia. This gift was lost
to the Persians after the ships from Egypt approached Rhodes. The Egyptians did not know
that the Rhodians had defected to the Persians.
