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.
