The inscrlption on the back pi11ar preserves the earlier form of the name of the Aten. The plece is particularly interesting as the relation of the flap to the back pillar is unusual. The back pillar reaches alrnost to the height of the headcovering; in section, it has the form glven in the adjacent drawing. The flap is "sp1it." and represented on either side of the negative space between the figure and the back pillar oroer"o. Material: Sandstone (?) . Provenance : Karnak. Bibliography r None.
