Limestone block-statue of Sahathor: a man named Sahathor is represented sitting on the ground with his crossed arms resting on his drawn-up knees. His body is covered by a cloak, from which only his open hands and bare feet emerge. Although the shape of the body is suggested, the form is so cubic. There are two columns of hieroglyphic text on the front and additional text on the plinth.
