Description

Roughly-carved limestone plaque, executed in raised relief. At the bottom is a wide ground line, upon which stands the image of a bull, facing right. The bull's legs are in a walking pose. Between the bull's horns is a sun disc, probably indicating that the animal represents the Apis Bull.
