During funerary rituals, offerings intended for the deceased were laid on an offering slab at the cult place in the tomb. Offerings are depicted on the top of the slab. Water poured into the small basin could flow out through the channel. The surrounding text is an offering formula that ends with the names of Intef and those of members of his family.
