Description

Re-worked sandstone stela of the scribe Amenemhet. Its round shape is due to the fact that it was reused as a column base. Amenemhet stands to the right of the stela. He holds a small brazier in one hand. He is pouring a libation into an offering basin. His name is written in a vertical column before him. Five columns of text are to the left.
