Catalogue Description:
Fragment of limestone showing the king worshipping the Aton disc. At the extreme left are two registers of hieroglyphs; the workmanship is good but the piece is so extremely fragmentary as so badly mutilated that it is of little value excepting as a study piece. This portion was found in two fragments which are now joined together. The fragment in the right hand is little more than a rough piece of stone. Condition very badly mutilated, large chips.
