Print description
A “family” stela showing a married couple (?) and two children in prayerful attitudes, one above their feet and the other opposite them. The adults, who are missing the upper bodies and heads, are depicted on a coach with mattress, one in front of the other, supporting themselves each on the left elbow resting on two pillows. Compositions with several figures are rare on stelae from Kom Abu Billou.

A “family” stela showing a married couple (?) and two children in prayerful attitudes, one above their feet and the other opposite them. The adults, who are missing the upper bodies and heads, are depicted on a coach with mattress, one in front of the other, supporting themselves each on the left elbow resting on two pillows. The dress and the leg arrangement of the figure in front are the same as on the stela of the son of Chairemon and Isidora. The couch has the form of a chest with symbols of the repast engraved on its longer side, between two sheaves of corn. The symbols include an amphora on a stand with a ladle suspended from the handle, a table and a two-handled jar. The dress and the position of the children are the same as on the stela of Bes. The surface to the left of the couch and under it is filled with lines intended for an inscription.
Compositions with several figures are rare on stelae from Kom Abu Billou. The couple with children by their side comes from Egyptian excavations at Kom Abu Billou.
