Add a one-line explanation of what this file represents


English: An exquisite offering vessel of the Egyptian Old Kingdom king Meryre Pepi I. It likely would have been used for the ritual of the 30 year Heb Sed Festival jubilee. Now located in the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, Maryland.
The three columns (registers) are read:
Column left is a single column, read to left.
Column center-and-right, are read right, as columns 2, then 1(last)
Column right reads: tp-S-D, festival-pavilion, "foremost, Sed, festival," etc.-(with 3 hieroglyphs for the festival: Pavilion, Hall, and Basin(festival)
Note:The bottom, horizontal-register of hieroglyphs, reads from center-left-(not in precise center), in both directions:
"Given-Life-USR, forever", Di, Ankh-Usr, djet-(wsr is also 'Usr', for power, or probably "Dominion", or 'Authority', "Kingship", etc)-(i.e. Given "Living-Kingship" Forever-!--(left)--Given "Living-Kingship" Forever-!--(right))
The phrase is mostly equivalent to today's en:English language phrase: Long live the King, (from en:The King is dead. Long live the King.)
