Uni

Uni (ōō´nē), fl. c.2300 BC, Egyptian official of the VI dynasty. His career is known through his private inscription. After rising from an obscure court position to a position of command, he defeated the Bedouins five times and pursued them as far as Palestine. As governor of the south under Pepi I, he established water connections with the quarries just above the First Cataract of the Nile by a series of canals cut through the granite, and shipped granite blocks down the river to be used for the royal pyramid.
