With two clearly differentiated sectors that culminate in a crescent decorated with the shen sign, this is the symbolic ring of universal power and eternity, flanked by the eyes of udjat. The lower portion can be distinguished by its three sector formation, separated by two columns with inscribed hieroglyphics. In each sector, a figure appears. They represent Res, the son of the Magnate of the Ten of Upper Egypt, facing Ammon-khuf and To, Servant to the prince. The upper portion is comprised of five parts bearing inscriptions that evoke Ptah-Sokar-Osiris and mention a brother of Res’ as the one making the offering.
