This fragment shows two scenes of funerary boats travelling to the right towards a booth under which are jars and a conical loaf.

The boat in the upper register is propelled by four oarsmen; in the cabin at the front two persons are seen talking to each other. On top five mourners are sitting, dressed in large white robes.

In the lower register a person on the right takes hold of the prow of a boat rowed by four oarsmen. The boat is carrying several standing individuals carrying funerary things. At the extreme right, beneath the upper booth, a servant is holding two jars on the ground.
