Fragment from Section of a Round-Top Stela of Teti-em-re
Under the rounded top of this funerary stela, decorated with wedjat-eyes ond other protoctive symbols, three short columns of hieroglyphs give the titles of a man nomed Teti-em-Re. The original carving depicted Teti-em-Re seated before an offering table with a rolled and folded cloth in one hand. The short chin beard, simple shoulder-length wig, and refined, delicate features are most frequently found in reliefs dating to the time of the joint reign of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, when this stela was probably made.

Above, and slightly to the right of the figure, are partially preserved wedjat eyes flanking a shen. Below the shen are three 'n' signs. Before the figure are the partially preserved remains of three columns of text. These give the man’s name as Tti-m-r'. Condition: Incomplete. Left edge badly chipped. Broken in two and mended.
