Menna tomb

the sub-register ends with a scene of slaughter and sacrifice of an ox. The animal lies on its back, rear legs tied, on a reed mattress. At the rear (left) is the officiating priest, holding a papyrus in his hand, probably reciting a sacred formula. In front of him, another priest, his kilt supported by a strap over his shoulder, pours a stream of water onto the animal from a vessel. The only butcher depicted cuts off the right foreleg of the animal.
