Oblong relief panel; ivory; from a larger composition depicting two seated figures, facing each other either side of a large cartouche surmounted by 2 Maat feathers. The inscription, consisting of Egyptian hieroglyphs, cannot be read, the signs having been treated in a purely decorative manner by the Phoenician craftsman; some of the original coloured inlay and gold leaf overlay survives.
