Description

Round-topped votive stela with borderline, and incised decoration. At the left is a standing man with shaved head and short kilt, facing right. His right arm hangs by his side, while his left is across his abdomen, holding the stem of a lotus flower. To the right is a column of text above an offering table. The text seems to give his name as Amenhotep, True of Voice.
