A high quality cylinder seal, Kingdom of the Mitanni, dating to the 15th.-14th. century BC.

This seal dates to the period known as the Mitannian Empire when much of northern Mesopotamia was under the control of people who spoke a language called Hurrian.

Interesting and beautiful carving with 3 of the elongated figures typical for the Mitannian seals, representing gods or worshippers. Very tall and slim design with a space divider as well. Carved in a cream-grey coloured stone, quite attractive with much smooth delicious wear.

Size: 4,4 cm.

Ex. Egeskov fine arts and formerly in old collections, comes with provenance and COA.
