Description
‘The design, which is put on a base line, shows a standing hero grappling wit ha horned rearing quadruped each side, while another hero is involved behind the animals’ backs. Six shapes fill spaces in the design.

This comes from North-West Iran and dates to c. 1100-900 B.C. It is a very rare seal and in good condition. Certain areas of North-West Iran were producing fine seals in frit at this period.’

Interpretation and dating provided by Professor Lambert. - (AM.0381)
