Description
The design, which rests on a base-line, shows a standing archer in a long robe aiming his bow at a big rearing snake, and a lunar crescent in the sky.

This is an Assyrian or Babylonian seal. The design is one normally found on faience seals, only rarely on stone.

The seal is in very good condition. - (LK.285)
