Alternate Title: Horus on the crocodiles

The reverse of the stela is in a fair condition although there is some chipping on the surface. The text is written with relatively big hieroglyphs. The height of the lines is 7 mm. The hieroglyphs are quite carefully carved. The inscription can be identified as Text B except for the last line that is the beginning of Text C, a rarer spell.
