Acadio Canica amarilla Sello de sello cilíndrico
Circa 2500-2200 BC

A fine example of an Akkadian hardstone cylindrical stamp seal, pierced longitudinally on the top for suspension. The seal will come with its modern impression: four animals walking on their hind legs, two of which are horned and are turned to attack a lion.

The seal comes with a provenanced note which gives a description of the seal and its history, and signed by W.G. Lambert, an Assyriologist Professor.

Seals have been the main illustrative material in the ancient Near East, and can be found even since 7th millennium BC. However, the carved ones only appear around the 4th millennium BC.

Measurements: circa 1.9cm length

Provenance: The Signo collection, the property of a West London businessman, formed in the late 1980’s-early 1990’s accompanied with a copy of a note from Professor W. G. Lambert.
