Description

Small round-topped stela with decoration in raised relief. Badly damaged. At the left is a standing image of Sekhmet, facing right, with a uraeus on her head (?). In the center of the stela is a much larger image of Ptah, standing and facing right. He stands upon a plinth, wears a wesekh and tassel, and holds a damaged scepter in his hands. At the right is the figure of a standig male worshipper, who wears a long garment. His arms are up in an attitude of praise.
