This rectangular plaque is decorated on both sides. One side shows a lying sphinx with ram’s head. He has a solar disk above his head and represents the solar god Amon. On his paws stands a cobra and above his back a few leaves. The other side has an inscription dedicated to Amon-ra (“nb imn r’ rs”, ‘Amon-ra watches (over me)’), with the solar bark on top.
