(The Meroitic Stela )

“The Stela is a colossal sandstone stela found at #Hamadab south of the ancient site of Meroë in Sudan. Now kept at the British Museum, the significance resides in the fact that it is inscribed with one of the longest known texts in #Meroitic script.”
The stela is in good condition, although part of the top is missing. The upper part includes a frieze showing the Kushite rulers Queen Amanirenas and Prince Akinidad facing various Egyptian deities including #Amun and #Mut.
