Description

Badly weathered round-topped stela with two registers of sunk relief decoration. At the left is the standing image of a god, badly damaged by salts. At the left is a standing male god whom Schulman identifies as Reshep. To his right is a standing male worshiper with shaved head, and long robes. Behind him is a standing woman and a child. In the lower register is an offering table at the left, piled high with gold ingots. To the right is a standing male worshipper, who may be the same person pictured in the upper register. Here, his name is written as Nebneheh. To his right are three women, all facing left. The bottom right corner of the stela is missing.
