This corner block includes two vertical columns of incised hieroglyphs in sunk relief that are separated by a band, also in sunk relief. The surface with hieroglyphs has a slight batter, indicating that it is part of a doorframe. There are very faint traces of pigment. The hieroglyphs read as part of an offering formula to Anubis.
From Giza, G 2184. Excavated by the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition; assigned to the MFA in the division of finds by the government of Egypt.
