Magic Stela of Horus

This rounded top stela shows Horus surmounted by the face of Bes. He is represented naked, with a child's lock. He holds in his hands two animals, and steps on some crocodiles. Flanking Horus, are four gods represented in two registers.

On the front face of the stela, a king is seen on his chariot driven by two horses. He is shooting his arrows on his enemies, while two crocodiles, with their mouths tied by ropes are seen under the royal chariot.

On the background, one can observe gazelles, snakes and a scorpion. The stela is covered on all its sides by a magic text.

This kind of stelae had a magic power of protection against reptiles and scorpions
