A: Stone carved in the shape of a cartouche. Two figures standing in profile, facing each other. The left-hand figure wears a long robe and the atef-crown, and holds bowls in both hands. The right-hand figure also wears a long robe, a beard, and the solar disk with uraei on his head. Both arms raised, right one holding a reed leaf, left one holding a netjer-scepter. Above, a large, winged sun disk.
