In the upper register are two bodies of water, probably versions of the Lake of Fire, guarded by cobras and jackal-headed humans. In the central register is the snake of time Hiririet in a pit, surrounded by water and a mound on which stand the goddesses of the twelve hours of the night, as well as nine followers of Osiris as mummies lying within shrines. On the lower register is a procession of twelve gods (on the left) and eleven human figures behind a rearing cobra (on the right) approaching a chapel in which Osiris in the white crown stands on a coiled snake.
