Neferkamin may have been an Eighth Dynasty pharaoh of ancient Egypt during the First Intermediate Period.

His throne name "Sneferka" is attested on the Abydos King List (n. 47) although it is possible that here the name is mistyped, and the O34 hieroglyph ("s") in fact is a R22 ("min"), hence "Neferkamin".[1] The correct reading of this king's name is provided, along with the name of Nikare, on a gold plaque now in the British Museum; however, it has been suggested that this object could be a forgery.[2]
