This limestone fragment came from a New Kingdom tomb at Abusir/Saqqara, Egypt. The relief depicts five enthroned pharaohs, looking to the left. In front of the face of every one of them, a cartouche is inscribed. Only the cartouche at the middle somewhat has survived and can be read as Menkaura (Menkaure). New Kingdom, 19th Dynasty, 1292-1186 BCE. On display at the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany.
