Stela Fragment


A fragment of a limestone stela with a carved relief representation of the god Amun. He is seated on a throne to the left and is facing right, he holds a staff or sceptre in his left hand and before him is one of the standard epithets of the god, 'Lord of Thebes' in hieroglyphs. Ticket with printed number "17" [Rustafjaell collection] stuck upon a circular label with the lot number "75/12" stuck upon a ticket with a printed number beginning "2". Red writing on one side but is illegible. In 1915 the Museum exchanged a cast of the ivroy diptych of Asclepius - Hygieia and Etrucan teeth for this fragment of a stela from the Wellcome Historical Museum (reference to Dr Thompson).
