Stone: red quartzite (origin - from the "Red Mountains" of Djebel Akhmar, an area near Heliopolis)

Coronation-scenes of the 7th register, North-Wall, blocks 117, 141, 178, 186).
In this scene Amun is fixing the "Crown of the Morning House = hnw n pr dwAt aA xpr.w" (Stephan, 2008) on the head of the queen (see also South-Wall Block 71). Hatshepsut is kneeling in front of Amun, the goddess "Hathor, Lady of Dendera = @w.t-@r nb.t Jwn.t" is shown standing in front of the pr-wr.

On the right part of the scene a Iunmutef-priest supports ritually as the "Wab-priest of the pr-wr" the "fixing of the crown" on the head of the queen.

  The "Crown of the Morning House" is also depicted in the 2nd column of the inscription.
