This is a finely engraved haematite cylinder seal. The seal is engraved with the sun-god Shamash, his foot resting on a small mountain, carrying the saw-weapon in his right hand, a worshipper approaches, wearing a fringed rope. A suppliant goddess stands behind the sun-god Shamash, wearing a flounced robe, her hands raised in adoration. Between them a ball-staff and vessel. Space for column of inscription. The Seal comes with the stand which the former owner made (see last picture).

Date: Old Babylonian Period, ca. 2000 - 1600 B.C.
Material: haematite
Size: ca. 2,1 cm
Condition: intact
Provenance: private French collection of Mr. & Ms. M. (bought 10.05.1980 at Galerie François Antonovich, Paris), in Germany since 2023

The authenticity of the item is unconditionally guaranteed.

Sehr schöne Scarabee aber leider gibt es zwei kleine Beschädigungen am Rand. Es ist bestimmt eine Ägyptische scarabee und zweifle nicht an die Authentizität.
