AN EGYPTIAN DIORITE FRAGMENTARY STELE
Late Period, Dynasty XXVI-XXX, 664-343 B.C.
Possibly from a stelophoros, the rear preserving the remains of a boss-like projection, the lunette of the front with an incised framing line, and the remains of two columns of neatly designed hieroglyphs invoking "the god of deities that he may grant... forever [and ever]..."
