Catalogue Description:
Round-topped limestone stela bearing a representation of, and inscribed for, King Sety I (Mn-ma'at-r'). The king is represented, on the upper portion of the stela, standing and wearing the Blue Crown. Below the king are three lines of inscription: the inscription dates the piece to Year 1 of Sety 1. Both figure and inscription are executed in sunk relief. The stela was cut off at the bottom in modern times; the other edges and the rear surface are rough. The piece is somewhat wider near the top (at the springing of the round top) than at the bottom. Condition: Numerous chips and scratches.
