Description

A long narrow limestone stela relief pattern. It is perhaps part of a Coptic stela. The relief pattern appears fragmentary, but the sides and reverse of the item are clearly worked surfaces, suggesting that this may have been cut from a larger decorated object. The material appears to be dense off-white limestone of good quality. See also EC748.
