Round-topped stela with at the top a representation in high relief of a winged sun disk, from which two uraei are hanging down. Underneath is a shrine or aedicula in which the snake god Agathos Daimon lies coiled on a cushion. The serpent is executed in very high relief. The shrine consists of a double cornice, supported on architraves by two lotus columns, and standing on a ledge. The wings of the sun disk and the lotus columns have been executed en detail, in contrast with the cornice and the body of the serpent. The stela was painted.
