probably Sais

Bakenranef was the son of Tefnakhte and ruled as the second pharaoh of the 24th Dynasty. He probably ruled form Sais, like his father, although not much is known about his reign. While he is mentioned by the greeks as a "gifted lawgiver", his economic policies and administrative policies are unknown.

He is mentioned on a vase found in an Etruscan tomb in a town about 100 kilometers northwest of Rome. No mention of artifacts in Egypt.

Manetho mentions him, and writes that he was taken prisoner by Shabaka and burned at the stake.
