Description

A king wearing a red crown stands or sits in front of a small fan.  He holds a flail in front of him.  Above him, in what appears to be a separate register, are images of two deities, the vulture goddess Nekhbet and the cobra goddess Wadjet or Edjo.  The deities and several other elements are coloured a golden yellow. Neither the style nor the colouration matches the rest of the decorationfrom the 11th Dynasty temple of Nebhepetre Montuhotep.

It may be Ptolemaic.
