DescriptionThis fragment of raised relief, perhaps never completely carved, shows a line of stars at top.  Below there are remains of grafitti.  A frieze of stars was carved over the heads of the procession of royal ladies seen in 910.34.38 and associated blocks.  Perhaps this fragment came from such a scene.
