A scarce and interesting Neo-Assyrian cylinder seal, ca. 9th.-7th. BC.

The seal is carved in a wonderful cream hard stone, showing a contest scene of a four-winged hero in the centre, flanked by two mythical 4-legged beast with birds heads, which he grasps.

Wonderful depiction and a nice seal for the Neo-Assyrian period!

Size: 13-14 mm.

Condition: Choice, high relief with a fine imprint.

Ex. Karl Jakob Müller, Frankfurt, aquired between 1959 and 1977.
