A: Four-winged Bes-Pantheos standing to front, feet to right, on an Ouroboros forming a cartouche, which encloses six notches to indicate animals. The face is bearded, four animal-protomes project from the sides of the head, which is topped by an atef-crown complete with ram's horns, uraei and sun disk; a bird’s tail and a crocodile’s tail project from the hips to the left of the body. The deity has two pairs of wings and arms: the upper arms – in line with the top of the upper wings and almost at the height of the neck – are stretched to the sides. Tufts on the knees, feet in the shape of jackal's heads (?). Behind the wings: one scepter on the left; two scepters (one of them with a bird on the top) on the right.  To the left of the crown at the top is a hawk with the double crown (Bonner: solar disk).
