Description

CBS Register: seal cylinder, hematite

PBS XIV: The worshiping of a bearded Amorite god stepping forth with a scimitar in one hand, and a bow hung over his shoulder. He has a bulging conical hat, his hair tied in a swallow tail, a short fringed tunic girded about his middle. The usual divine attendant adores with both hands up. A bearded worshiper in turban and fringed shawl does the same with one hand up. In front of him, a beardless servant or priest, with a tight fringed tunic girded about, stands on a dais, pail and libation vase in hand, ready to perform the rights. He has a strange headdress, a low turban, or a wig with a short tail hanging over the forehead. Concave cyl. seal. Hematite, 22 x 10 mm.
