CBS Register: Babylonian seal cylinder in hematite
PBS XIV: The worshiping of the goddess Ishhara, stepping forth scepter and ring in hand, her bare leg lifted on a low stool. She has the horned mitre, hair tied in a loop, plaited shawl girded about and opening in front, and cross straps over her shoulders. A worshiper in turban and fringed robe adores with one hand up. There is a squat monkey in front, and behind him a bareheaded servant in fringed loin cloth carrying a pail and a libation vase.
"Gimil-Ishhara//servant of Adad." Cyl. seal. Hematite, 20 x 12 mm
