This is a detail of a large limestone relief (showing a boat trip) that came from the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari, Egypt. The throne name (prenomen) cartouche of the Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose II (regined 1493–1479 BCE) appears.

The hieroglyphic signs read "Akheperenre" (Great is the form of Re). New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, 1479-1458 BCE. It is on display at the Neues Museum, Berlin, Germany.
