Description

Small round-topped travertine stela, broken at the bottom, decorated in sunk relief. At the left stands an image of the god Amun, who wears his twin-plumed crown. He holds a was scepter in his slightly extended left arm, and an ankh in his right which hangs at his side. Before him at the right side of the stela is an offering table with a vessel on top, and a lotus flower hanging in space above it. Two columns of text at the center top of the stela record his name as "Amun, the Great God, Lord of Heaven."
