Raised relief fragment from the Ptolemy I Temple of Hathor of Mafket. The upper portion of this fragment displays the feet of two different figures. The figure at the left holds a was-scepter. The end of a column of inscription is visible between the figure's leg and the scepter. The figure at the right strides forward, and wears a bull's tail. Below a double ground-line is a line of text, read from left to right, recording the king's name "Lord of Appearances, (Ptolemy)| [given] life like Re, forever." Remains of red and yellow color.
