Small votive stela. On the left is an incised image of the god Ptah, facing right. Ptah is wrapped in a tight-fitting garment, stands upon a pedistal, and appears to have had a shrine around him, one line of which can be seen behind the god at the left edge of the stela. Ptah has a long false beard, a tassel at the back of his neck, and holds a roughly-carved was scepter. To the right is the badly-effaced image of a male worshipper, who faces left toward the god. He wears a short kilt, with his right foot forward, and right hand pointing downward toward the god. No inscription.
