Relief with Offering List
Four columns of text in this fragment list offerings for Senwosret II to enjoy throughout eternity, including wine, beer, a copper bowl, and a container of festival perfume (the sign for "container" appears in the lower left). The hieroglyphs show considerable detail, as in the meticulous rendering of the man's curly hair at the bottom of the second column from left.
