Fragment of a badly weathered limestone stela decorated in raised relief. Ptah stands at the left, facing right. There is a border at the left behind the god, which may either be the edge of the stela, or possibly a trace of a shrine in which the god stands. Ptah wears his skull-cap and tight-fitting garment, but lacks a tassel at his neck. He holds a well-modeled was scepter. Indistinct traces at the right edge of the fragment may represent the hand of a worshipper.
