Does anyone have any information?

It's a false door of Thutmose III. I'm not an expert on that temple, but presumably it came either from the 18th dyn structures there or was removed from elsewhere on the west bank, e.g. his mortuary temple.

Thanks a lot for that clarification. A rather odd thing to find in that context, but very fine.
