This fragment probably comes from a divine standard that was part of a standing statue of Haremhab, last king of Dynasty 18. The preserved inscription describes the king as "beloved of Thoth, Lord of Hermopolis, he who is in the midst of the Hare Nome." This suggests that the statue was made for the temple of Thoth at his cult center in Hermopolis (modern el-Ashmunein) which was capital of the ancient Egyptian province known as the Hare Nome.
