Small, crudely-cut rectangular votive stela with incised decoration. At the left is the standing god Ptah, who has a tassel, and holds a combined was/ankh/djed scepter. To his right, and facing left, is a bird wearing a sun disc and uraeus on its head. The bird stands on a standard, and appears to have a human arm holding an ankh. Schulman identifies this image as the god Nehi.
