Description:
Fragment of bottom right portion of a stela, showing feet (with sandals), skirt, and sash of an individual (probably a male) carved in raised relief. Beneath the feet is a line of crudely incised hieroglyphs. The hieroglyphic text gives the beginning of a standard offering formula. The relief fragment appears to come from a funerary stela.
