PBS XIV: The worshiping of the usual Martu stepping forth club and scimitar in one hand, and of the war goddess Ishtar. She ads the scimitar in one hand, and the caduceus in the other., and two quivers full of arrows hanging across her shoulders. She has a horned mitre, her head in front face, a plaited shawl girded about her waist and opening in front to let pass her bare leg lifted on a small crouched lion. Between them there are a goat fish and a turtle.
The usual divine attendant adores with both hands up. In front a small bareheaded Amorite servant with a short loin cloth carries a pail and a libation vase. Other emblems are a fly and a fish or hedgehog.
"Ea//great lord of abundant mercy//foundation of the god Kurgal." Concave cyl. seal. Hematite, 23 x 11 1/2 mm.
