"Meny, whose full name was Menankhpepy, held a number of adminstrative titles associated with the 6th-dynasty kings Pepy I and Merenra. This funerary stele comes from his mastaba at Dendara in southern Egypt. Meny stands at the left, while the rest of the stele is occupied by a prayer seeking offerings from the funerary god Osiris. The high, raised relief and carefully detailed hieroglyphs are characteristic of sculpture from Dendara at this time." (From info card)
