Large and very attractive Sumerian lapis lazuli cylinder seal, Early Dynastic IIIb, circa 2500-2300 B.C.,

Size: 2,9 cm in height.

The seal is divided in two registers with a double line divider. The upper register shows the row of animals, a lion and two goats. The lower register has a contest scene.

Condition: Nearly Superb - very good for this early and often corroded type!

The cracks in the impression, are bad clay not problems with the stone! - the stone is perfect. A large and rare Lapis seal - seldomly offered on the market.
