This plaque is engraved on only one side. The upper part of the inscription seems to display of two seated deities, facing each other, and placed on top of a horizontal motif (the “mr” sign?). Below, some unidentified hieroglyphs are visible (“m” and “s”?). Seals with the names of Ramesside pharaohs show similar compositions.
