Guest Book
Neo-Babylonian or Neo-Assyrian cylinder seal, dating ca. 800-700 BC.

A spectacular cylinder seal, relatively large and perfect condition and wonderful style.

In lapis lazuli, burnt or petrified on the surface.

Size: 30x15mm.

Accompanied with a note of prof. Lambert: ''The main items shown on this seal are two gods. On the right is a standing god in a nimbus. he wears no head-gear, but a long robe open at the front, from which one leg projects. He holds a bow in one hand with the other resting on the ground. Behind him and to the left is a god similarly dressed, but gripping a pair of differentiated horned animals, one in each arm around their necks. As a terminal there's a recumbent sphynx below a symbol on a pole.''

Ex. Kjersgaard Collection, published as seal 30 in the book ''The Cylinder Seal As An Object D'art'' p. 95.
