The anfloga, here a vulture, carries the ring of eternity

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

But how come Nesitanebtasheru gets immortalised?
