The large stele shows a three-figure scene. On the left, a young woman is seated on a backless chair with a footstool. She gazes towards an elderly woman who stands opposite her, leaning towards her. She may be the mother: with one hand she holds the young woman’s arm, with the other she gently touches her chin in a gesture of parental affection. A young girl stands behind the seated figure, her left hand raised to her chin in mourning. The composition suggests that the seated woman is the deceased, but lacking an inscription the identification is uncertain.
