The crook was a sceptre in the shape of a shepherd's crook. Its name is related to the verb 'to rule'.  The flail or flabellum was an ancient symbol of royal power and was often depicted with other regalia, generally the crook, but also the mace as in the depiction of the king of the north on the Narmer Palette or other sceptres. In the Pyramid Texts Pepi I is identified with Sopdu: The flail is in your hand, the mks-sceptre is behind your hand.
