Underneath are two lines of incised hieroglyphs which repeat the prenomen and nomen of Ramses III with titles. The lintel has been broken in two and repaired in modern times. The edges and parts of the surface have been damaged and recently restored. There are traces of brown or red paint on the feathers of the winged sun-disk.
