Another block from the same temple wall was acquired 15 years later by the museum.
These blocks from a temple wall show four figures identified as nomes, or provinces, of ancient Egypt. Carrying trays heaped with offerings and leading sacrificial animals, they personify the bounty of the land that they bring to the god who stood in the upper register, facing a figure of the king, Amenhotep III. These blocks may be from Amenhotep III's temple, dedicated to the god Horus.
