Stela of King Seankhiptah of Egypt

Made of limestone and dating to the Second Intermediate Period (13th-14th Dynasties, c. 1785-1633 BCE), this ancient Egyptian stela is the primary source of information about Seankhiptah. On the left, the sovereign appears before the god Ptah, and on the right Nebsumenu, donor of the stela, presents an offering to Anubis. The text below describes a land re-zoning process whereby farmlands were turned into districts, perhaps as navigable irrigated areas. (Museo Arqueológico Nacional, Madrid)
