Description: Upright oval, both faces flat. Shape 8–9. Lapis lazuli. Intact.

A: Four-winged, ithyphallic Pantheos standing to front, feet to left, on an Ouroboros forming a cartouche, which encloses, from left to right a crocodile(?), a goat(?), a ram(?) and a symbol, all facing left.  Rays or spikes(?) above the Ouroboros. The god’s face is to front and four animal-protomes project from the sides of the head, which is topped by a crown (probably the atef). 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 and hold two plants. The lower arms: right hand holding a was-scepter, left hand lowered beside the body.  Next to the left leg, an unidentified object. 
B: Animal-headed figure standing to left, wearing kilt, upper body nude. On the head two horns, between them the solar disc. The figure is holding a was-scepter in the right hand and the hieroglyph ankh in the left hand.
