[Osorkon] Osokhor (about 985/84-979/78 BC)

King of the Twenty-first Dynasty. The Egyptian form of the nomen is not attested in contemporary sources, but the Greek version 'Osochor' found in later kinglists may be assumed to be for Osorkon, on the parallel of the later kings Osorkon (the name seems to be Libyan, i.e. of the western desert nomads who settled in Egypt).
