This rectangular stele is decorated with figures in high relief. It presents a symmetrical design using the resource of the central tree as a separating element of records. At each end is a winged androcephalous figure accompanied by an animal: to the right is a bird and to the left a rabbit. On a technical level, it is a simple composition with schematic figures drawn in profile, which refers us to a style of still archaic features.
