architectural fragments

Corner of limestone block sculpted in form of cavetto cornice and register with hieroglyphic inscription 'voice-offerings of bread and beer, cattle' as regularly found on funerary monuments; the inscription occupies the curving space above the cornice, the other preserved exterior face being blank; the top is flat and uninscribed; probably from a funerary shrine-shaped niche or other offering-chapel element
