Bauerdat was an official during the 5th Dynasty
and served under Izezi. Bauerdat was the leader of the
expeditions to the regions located below the cataracts of
the Nile. They traveled as far south as Sudan for the
king. It is said that he returned to Izezi with a dwarf,
probably a Deneg. Dwarfs were highly prized in the royal
households in Egypt. Bauerdat, who is called Bauerded in
some records, recorded his service and honors on a stela.
