Description

Irregular votive stela made from a reused quartzite flour griding stone. The piece is curved, and the interior surface has been ground smooth. At the top left are images in raised relief. At the left is a goddess whose features are indistinct, possibly Sekhmet. To the right is an image of Ptah, standing upon a plinth. He holds a was scepter in his hands. To the right is the beginning of a poorly-composed funerary offering spell, executed in incised hieroglyphs painted white. The text continues below in five horizontal lines, read from right to left.
