I’m not a specialist in Egyptian history, but the narrative I”m familiar with says that Menes was the king of Upper Egypt and then conquered Lower Egypt. I don’t know what the Wikipedia article could mean specifically by calling Menes the inventor of wealth, since wealth as an economic concept includes pretty much all goods.

Sorry for the slow responses. I’ve been without internet access for almost a week.
