Upper portion of a round-topped stela with incised decoration, and traces of red color. Borderline around edge. At the left is an image of Ptah, facing right, with a tassel at his neck. The top of a low chair near the god's back shows that he was originally seated. He holds a composite was/ankh/djed scepter. At the right is a worshipper facing left. His head is clean-shaven, and he holds his hands up in an attitude of praise. Before him was an offering table, now missing, with a vessel and lotus flower upon it. The damaged text seems to indicate that the dedicant's name is Neferrenpet.
