Doorjamb of the Mayor of Memphis Menkheper
This is the left doorjamb from a Theban tomb of the New Kingdom. It was found reused as a door sill in the north wall of the "palace" tomb of Sheshonq (TT 27), who served as the Chief Steward of the God's Wife of Amun Ankhnesneferibre during Dynasty 26. The doorjamb is inscribed with an offering prayer to Re-Harakhty-Atum, beneath which is a finely executed representation of Menkheper, the mayor of Memphis under the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Amenhotep III. The right jamb is now in Cairo (JE 66284).
