Iconography Ptah | Shrine

Upper portion of a round-topped stela. Ptah stands at the left, facing right, inside a shrine. He holds a composite was / ankh / djed scepter, and wears a wesekh with tassel. To the right is an area which originally held the image of a worshipper. That area has been sanded down to remove that image, and probably an epigraph which existed above it in the rounded top of the stela. In its place there is a very poorly scratched image of a standing worshipper (?), and may be a pile of offerings in between him and the god.
