This paper presents an assessment of a distinctive standing stone which is currently on display in the Imhotep Museum, Saqqara. The prominent snake decoration of the stela is compared with other examples of snake stelae from Ancient Egypt, leading to the proposed identification of the monument as part of an Early Dynastic senut(i) shrine, a shrine associated with the cult of Ra.
