Description Round-topped funerary stela, with lunette and two registers.
There is a winged sun-disk across the top of the lunette, with two pendant uraei and an inscription between and on the right hand side. There is a sky-symbol above a scene depicted on the upper register. The scene depicts a female, Tasheritbastet, standing on the right hand side, wearing a long wig and fringed dress, adoring Osiris standing on a pedestal. Osiris is depicted mummiform, wearing the atef-crown, holding the ankh-was-djed-sceptre, with bandages hanging in front of him. Osiris is followed by Anubis who stands with one hand raised and the other pendant holding the ankh-symbol. Isis and Nephthys follow, both holding papyrus sceptres in one hand and ankh-symbols in the other. The lower register has seven lines of hieroglyphs, facing to the right, and one line of demotic.
There is some damage to the lower register.
