There are 14 columns of hieroglyphic inscriptions on this limestone slab; they list offerings. The hieroglyphs on the slab edge read "revered before Anubis upon his mountain, he who is in the embalming-place". The slab dates back to the Old Kingdom era but it appears that the it was re-used later. From Meydum, Egypt. Old Kingdom, 2686-2181 BCE. The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, London (With thanks to The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, UCL).
