A blue faience object with four extensions (one missing) around a circular indentation. It is likely from the MacGregor collection, and was possibly a votive offering stand for a votive papyriform column (See EC196 for a possible top piece of such a column). Petrie believes examples from Dendera were from the earlier New Kingdom temple. Petrie also associates such objects with Hathor.
