Catalogue Description:
Top part of walking stick belongign to a man perhaps named Tety. Knob at the top shows traces of a white circle of paint in the center. Below the knob are nine, wide horizontal bands, one separated from another by four thin strips of alternating black and white. The wide bands seem to have been decorated with vertical stripes of alternating black, red, white yellow. Below the ninth band is a somewhat narrower band still bearing traces of some pigmentation, and then four stripes of alternating black and white. Two columns of inscription. Condition: The stick is broken slightly below the inscription. The traces of paint give enough clues to re-establish the patterns. Chipping in places has made reading certain signs problematic.
