Only this fragment from the top of a round topped limestone stela has survived. There are 3 columns of hieroglyphic inscriptions; these state that the stela was "made by the guardian of king's provisions of the Lord of the Two Lands Horemheb". They also mention the name of the god as "Seth of Nubt (Naqada)". The scene blow depicts two hands of the offerer, who holds incense-vessels, and the snout of Seth. From Naqada, Egypt. 19th Dynasty, circa 1292 to 1187 BCE. The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, London (with thanks to The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, UCL).
