A biconvex and bi-facial red Jasper seal, engraved with hieroglyphs on both sides, Hittite Empire, 14th.-13th. century BC.

These seals are often engraved with the name of living persons and most commonly men, sometimes women. Our seal is so far undecifered, but the seal is very finely preserved and the inscription sharp.

A perfect larger inscribed seal, carved in a highly attractive stone.

Size: ca. 19 mm. in diameter and ca. 0,9 mm thick.

Condition: Superb!

Ex R.T. Private collection, since 1958 in Münich, Germany.
