Description

Upper portion of a round-topped stela with incised decoration. At the left is an image of Thoth, seated upon a throne, facing right. He has a lunar disc on his head, holds a was scepter in his open left hand (possibly a secondary addition), and an ankh in his right upon his lap. At the right is a standing worshipper, who has a long wig. His arms are raised in praise, and he holds a vessel (?) in his right hand. Lines for two short columns of text exist above the heads of both Thoth and the worshipper, but neither was inscribed.
