A relief of exceptional quality and archaizing style. At the upper left is a section of the cartouche outlined in rope, as is found in archaic work. In many of its details this relief could be traced to the Old Kingdom, but the exceptional delicacy of the diadem, necklace, and false beard establish this as later archaizing work.
