Fragment of a round-topped stela. Winged sun disc and twin udjat eyes with incense cup in the lunette. The central panel has three standing gods, facing right. At the right is a falcon-headed god wearing a sun disc on his head, wrapped like a mummy, holding a was-scepter. The central deitiy is also falcon-headed with a sun disc on his head, but he is dressed in a kilt, with his left hand up in praise, and his right hand by his side holding an ankh. At the left is a goddess with a Hathor crown, whose left arm is up in praise, while her right arm is by her side holding an ankh. Partial texts between the figures.
