Small votive stela which is badly weathered on the right hand side. Incised decoration depicts the god Ptah at the left, facing right. Ptah appears to hold a staff, but his hands are indistinct. He lacks a shrine. To the right are traces of a worshipper, facing left toward Ptah. The worshipper stands with their right leg forward, and appears to be wearing a long linen garment whose sleeve hangs down from the raised right arm. No inscription.
