A royal figure in the center presents incense to a hawk-headed deity, perhaps the moon god Khonsu. A seated goddess (Isis or Hathor) receives offerings at the left, while a king (Nectanabo II?) wearing the crown of Lower Egypt makes an offering at the right. Such offerings reflect the Egyptian ruler’s role in maintaining a correct balance between human and divine.
