This article studies the stela of Mertanahy at the Egyptian Museum Cairo (JE 49637). The provenance of this stela is unknown. The database of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo did not provide any data about this stela. It belongs to Mertanahy, who was Sole companion and Overseer of cloth. It probably dates to the late Old Kingdom to Early First Intermediate Period, based on its style, epigraphical and orthographical study. It is worth noting that the text recorded on this stela is very common. It contains the offering formula associated with the god Anubis accompanied by the owner’s title and name, followed by the name of his son Iti, wife Qedi, and daughter Ankhenes.
