Egyptian stele lists offerings to the gods

A New Kingdom stele, found during construction work in northern Cairo, contains a list of offerings made to the gods during the 18th or 19th dynasty in Egypt.

Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim explained that the newly-discovered stone artefact is the right section of a New Kingdom stele, on which is displayed a complete, illustrated list of various offerings to ancient Egyptian deities. A collection of geese, vegetables, fruits, bread, and cattle is depicted.

Lotus flowers are also shown, as well as religious worship poetry in hieroglyphic form.
