Description

A piece of inscribed and painted stone from a tomb in Beni Hassan, mutilated in 1889. The markings include parts of two lenticular shapes defined by red strips bounded on both sides by black lines, with traces of green. The areas are outlined and hatched with dark-brown/black paint. One of these areas may have been retouched in modern times with black ink.
