Abydos, Information on stela UC 14273
The interpretation of the inscription is difficult, but the following readings seem secure:
Qai-Neit (qAi-nit) - the name of the woman
Semty (smti) - this is a name of king Den
The readings of the following titles are uncertain:

the signs below might be read sqrt 'captive' - which might mean that the woman might have been a captive of war:
The full inscription would then read:
provider of Horus, captive of (king) Semty, Qai-Neit
