This fragment from Akh-Isut, the temple of Nebhepetre Montuhotep at Deir el Bahari shows the king facing right.  His royal beard has lost its colour, but is just visible below his chin.  The black chinstrap is still visible. His broad collar appears to have been formed of alternating rows of green and another colour beads.  The traces at the back of his neck suggest he was wearing the White Crown of the South.
