Description

Reconstructed votive stela decorated with incised relief. At the left, the god Ptah stands upon a plinth inside a shrine. He wears his tight-fitting garment, and has a tassel at the back of his neck. The area of his arms is badly damaged, but he holds a was scepter. Standing upon the ground line which extends from the bottom of Ptah's plinth are three offering tables, upon which is a large pile of food offerings. Above the offerings and to the right of Ptah's shrine is a short inscription in two columns which includes the name of "Ptah, Lord of the Two Lands."
