Upper left corner fragment of a round-topped limestone stela decorated with shallow sunk relief. At the top and left is an incised border line which parallels the edge of the stela. The head of the god Ptah is centrally located on the fragment, and would have originally stood on the left side of the stela. He wears a flaring false beard with chin strap, wesekh collar, and traces of a tassel at his neck. His left hand is preserved, which holds a was scepter in front of his face. Above his head to the right is a short text in three columns giving the god's name and epithets. The modern number 214/10 is also written on the stela.
