Limestone Funerary Stela of Iamu, from Dendera, Late 11th Dynasty.
Iamu, overseer of the Prophets and Superintendent of the Wardrobe of the Temple of Hathor, is shown with his wife Oudjet, "Sole Royal Ornament of Hathor, Mistress of Heliopolis and Prophetess." Two servants, depicted in a very small scale are attending them. The figure at the upper right holds a bowl of liquid before his master's mouth. Before them stand a table heaped with the usual food offerings, including the foreleg and head of a cow.
