Abstract:
The Stela of Qeft (Qeft R. N169, TT33) perhaps was erected at Dendera, and it moved to the storehouse museum of Qeft from chest number 6 in (TT33) at AL-Assassif, west bank of Thebes (Modern Luxor). It probably dedicated to Hor-Behdity and Hathor in a religious occasion at Dendara or elsewhere. The stela has a rectangular round top and divided into three registers with sacred symbols, scenes and empty cartouches in the first and second parts with no texts. Giving a date and determining the era to this stela will depend basically on the artistic styles and studying the empty cartouches after the general description of the stela and its components.
