Stela of Irethoreru.
Beneath the wings of Horus the Behdetite, a manifestation of the solar god often found on stelae, or commemorative tablets, Irethoreru, at the right, makes an offering to the god of the underworld, Osiris, and his wife, Isis. The different shades of the stone have been successfully exploited for aesthetic purposes. Though the style of the representations is drawn from earlier periods, textual details suggest a Twenty-fifth Dynasty date.
Black syennite funerary stela of i’r.t-hr-i’r.w set up by his wife i’n-imn-n3y-nb.w. Above, in sunk relief, winged sun disk below which deceased makes offerings to Osiris and Isis. Eight lines of text. Condition: Excellent. Small fragment missing from left edge - otherwise perfect. Excellent workmanship.
