Gypsum wall panel relief: showing part of a court scene. Depicted is an attendant bearing the royal bow and quiver and sword, followed by a winged being, who wears the two-horned cap, and holds in his hands objects used in connection with the ceremony of fertilizing the palm-tree. The sandals are coloured black with red soles, and the clothes have incised patterns. The decorative borders on the garments worn show a palm-tree with an ostrich on each side of it, within a border filled with rosettes, together with clusters of palm-leaves and fruit. There is an inscription written in cuneiform script.
