Description

Stela of Usermaatre-em-hab. The deceased stands at the right, facing left. He wears a long pleated garment, and holds a bunch of lotus flowers. At the left is the seated king, holding the crook and flail, facing right. Between the two men is an offering table. Above the figures are two texts. That on the left gives the name and title of the king "The good god, Lord of the Two Lands, Menkheperra, given life like Re." At the right is a dedicatory text, indicating that Usermaatre-em-hab is worshipping the Ka of the king. Painted.
