Stela of Henut

M13830
Round-topped stela, painted with scene and inscriptions. In the upper half are six snakes facing to the right, painted black and yellow. In the lower half is a kneeling figure of a lady named Henut, with hands raised in adoration facing the right. Before her are four vertical lines of hieroglyphs with a dedication to the snake goddess Meretseger. Technique was described by Professor Percy Newberry as being fine, with the preservation as being almost perfect. The stela was destroyed in the Second World War.
