The Ostracon of Prince Sethenkhopsef is a figured-ostracon of the son of Ramesses III. It is a standing, figured profile of Prince Sethenkhopsef in an adoration pose, with outstretched arms, a sceptre in his left hand, and right hand, palm-forward.

Behind Sethenkhopsef in a standard layout of figures and writing, is a vertical column of hieroglyphs with his name appearing at the end. (Seth,her,kepesh)
