Funerary stele


Funerary stele, late period
Florence, Museo Egizio, inv. 2502

Stele with a winged Sun disc in the lunette and an adoration scene on either side: the god Atum is on the right and the god Harakhty is on the left. The worshippers are a father and his son (who holds in his hand an instrument for sighting stars). Both men are priests tasked with determining the hours for performing rituals in the temple of Abydos.
