Narrow round-topped stela, cut down from a larger piece. Decorated with sunk relief, with traces of red pigment and gold leaf. Ptah stands facing right in a shrine, though the top of it has been cut off. He holds a composite was / ankh / djed scepter, and wears a wesekh with tassel. He stands upon a plinth. To the right at the edge of the piece are the traces of a standing male worshipper, facing left. A hes-jar can be seen near the edge, from which pours a stream of water. Toward the bottom of the scene is the angle of the kilt belonging to the male worshipper. There is a portion of a text above Ptah's head, and another below the feet of the worshipper which seems to have originally recorded his name.
