Stela Of Padikhered and Tasherimehet, Ptolemaic Period, 332-30 BCE. Found in Akhmim, Egypt. The British Museum (photo taken at The Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia).

This double stela was carved for two people - the scribe of Min, Padikhered, on the right and the musician of Min, Tasherimehet, on the left. They were both involved in the cult of Min, one of the main gods worshipped in Akhmim. Min symbolised fertility. He is depicted directly in front of Padikhered on the top right.
