Roughly carved round-topped stela with sunk relief decoration. The shape of the stela is irregular, perhaps indicating it is a reused piece of stone. Slightly less than one third of the way up the stela is an incised groundline. Upon this lines stands the figure of the goddess Sekhmet, facing right. On her head she wears a sun disc with uraeus. In her extended left hand she holds a papyrus scepter, and in her right she holds an ankh. In front of her at the right is a deeply-incised hourglass-shaped offering table of somewhat uncommon appearance. On top of the table are four circles, and a large lotus flower pointing toward the goddess.
