The scene represents Thutmose II wearing nemes before Anuket in the vulture headdress on her head, holding a sistrum and giving ʿnḫ-sign to the nose of the king. The inscription preserved between says: "praising god four times". The scene is framed with dividing lines and below the scene another one was most probably carved, but only traces of the sky representations can be seen.
