Large Akkadian cylinder seal in shell w contest scene!
$850.00

A rare and very large Mesopotamian cylinder seal, dating to the Early Dynastic/Akkadian period, c. 2400-2200 B.C.

A huge seal measuring 24 mm. in diameter and 32 mm. in height / length. The thickness makes the imprint very large - a contest scene with gods and animals among which a rearing lion and a bull.

Condition: Choice some wear, but very nice quality for the type.
