Upper portion of a round-topped stela with raised relief decoration. Reassembled from multiple fragments, with damage and loss to the bottom. At the left the god Ptah stands facing right. He is inside his shrine, and wears a wesekh-collar and tassel. He holds a combined was/ankh scepter, which seems to lack the djed pillar. The tops of his feet are just preserved, and he seems to have been standing on a plinth. To the right is a male worshipper, facing left. He stands with his hands raised in an attitude of praise. He wears a long pleated kilt, and his head is shaved. There is a space above and in front of him intended for two columns of text, but the space was never inscribed.
