PBS XIV: The worshiping of Ishtar. She steps forth, one hand extended in sign of blessing, the other resting on the hilt of her sword, and quivers with bows hung across her shoulders. She has a cylindrical mitre with a star on the top, her hair tied in a mass, a short tunic and a flounced shawl girded about and opening in front to let pass her bare leg. The worshiper has both hands extended and one lifted in sign of adoration. He wears a round mitre (?), a beard, his hair tied in a mass, a robe with zones of fringes. There is a columnar altar or libra (?) in front, and behind the goddess a genius with a scorpion tail and his long hair bound by a fillet carries a pail in one hand and a cone fruit in the other. Convex cyl. seal. Jasper, 27 x 12 1/2 mm.
