PBS XIV: The worshiping of a standard of Sin, a crescent on a long post. Two worshipers adore on either side with one hand up. One seems to have short hair, no beard, a tight belt and a short loin cloth, the other has a plaited robe covering one shoulder. Are they young male and female servants of the temple (?). The owner of the seal is probably the priestess worshiping the emblem of the Moon god. Her names means the revelation - or interpreter - of Gushirra, who belonged to the temple of the great gods of Ur (?).
Me Gushirra// daughter of Puksanum.
Cyl. seal. Carnelian, 23 x 7 1/2 mm
