Catalogue Description:
Fragment of a seated limestone statue of the Vizier and Mayor Ptahmose. Ptahmose wears a long skirt which laps over on his left side. This garment reaches down nearly to his ankles.

All four sides of the chair upon which Ptahmose sits are carved with relief to imitate wood openwork. On the front of the skirt is a vertical column of hieroglyphs, and there are two columns of hieroglyphs on the back pillar. Condition: Upper part of figure missing; stone blackened; large chips on seat and figure.
