The frontal face of the stela is smooth and carved in a delicate low relief with sunk outlines. Traces of the original paint are visible on the lower-half of the stela. The lowermost section of the stele is an unused, albeit smooth, surface. The lateral and dorsal faces of the stela are irregular and show marks of production. The object is broken into four pieces, which damaged a section of text. Otherwise, the object is beautifully preserved.
