Fragmentary Slab, "Riverside Scene"

 Part of this boat moored along the Nile appears in the lower left corner of this relief. Next to the boat a farmer, carrying two large water jars suspended from a pole, climbs the steep riverbank. His goal is the irrigated field, arranged in square plots, at the far right. In the scene at the very top, a shipbuilder smoothes a wooden plank.
