Catalogue Description:
Upper part of a tall round-topped funerary stela. The upper register bears a representation, in shallow sunk relief, of an Osiris-type figure facing right towards a small table. Opposite him, and facing him, stands a male figure wearing a long skirt, and a short wig cut on a bias. This figure extends two offerings towards the deceased. Above these figures are seven columns of text. In the lower right register are preserved the heads of three figures. The one on the left faces right; the other two face left. The central figure seems to be a woman who raises her hands in an attitude of offering. Condition: Piece missing from upper part of lower register down; eroded and pitting.
