Stele of Ptahmose

Stele of Ptahmose

The small stele with rounded top shows a figured scene framed by a thin engraved line that follows the contours of the stele. The upper part depicts two eyes-udjat the center of which is the solar disk, very worn. In the central scene are a man and a woman sitting on a seat with high back and legs of a lion, before which is a man who seems to offer a vase-hes, made in a stylized way. Above three figures are carved three columns of hieroglyphics which bear their names:
the right column shows the name of the man shown standing: Sa
the center column could return the name of the man seated: Men
the left column could state the name of the woman: Nebesenen
Under the scene is a line of text, which can be read only the last part: (....) Ptahmose
