According to Ryholt's 1997 book, Sheshi is attested by 396 seals alone which is 3 times more than the next highest figure of 123 seals

for Yakbim Sekhaenre who is another Asiatic ruler in Egypt whose precise dynasty or timeline is unknown.

As it  is not certain that the prenomen Sekhaenre belongs to Yakbim one cannot be precise about the dating

Ryholt places him  1805 BC - 1780 BC
