Overall: 103.5 x 51.8 cm (40 3/4 x 20 3/8 in.)

Gift of the Hanna Fund 1951.281



Virtually a duplicate of 1951.280. In both reliefs Mentuemhat wears the robes of his office as a high priest of Amen. Here the inscription has been outlined in red by a master draughtsman, but the relief sculptor has not started his work.
