A rare and beautiful large stamp seal in black Jet stone, Indo-Iranian / Bactrian, 1st. mill. BC.

The seal depicts the typical scene from Neo-Assyrian seals where the great king or hero slays the lion. The size and shape of the stone, combined with the wonderful naiive style of the carving, is more typical for the Bactrian region. And interesting seal made in the borderlands between Persian and Bactrian influence.

Size: 38 mm.
