A: Enclosed within a frame around the edge, a representation divided into three registers. Top: winged solar disk, with a scarab on each side. Center: enthroned figures on the two sides (man with solar disk on head on the left, holding reed leaf and scepter; woman on the right), approached by three adoring figures (two to left, one to right) with votive offerings (on the left). Bottom: scene divided by three columns. Between the columns, an animal-headed figure holding a netjer-scepter and ankh-sign (on the left) and an Isis-headed canopus with atef-crown, placed on a vessel stand.
B: Three cartouches. The top one is framed by two scarabs, and contains the name Intef, the bottom ones are topped by the hieroglyph ’mn’ and contain the names of Mentuhotep (on the left) and Nubkheperra (on the right), kings of the 11th and 17th dynasties.
Probably from the same workshop as CBd 966.
