Relief of Princess Khekeret-nebty
The column of hieroglyphs to the right of this depiction of Khekeret-nebty identifies her as "the king's daughter of his body, beloved of him." Her name is written above her head. The cartouche (royal oval) in the upper left names her father, King Isesy. The carving lacks details and the surface was never polished, suggesting that the princess may have died before this relief was completed.
