Cylinder Seal with a Seated God


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Seals first appeared in Cappadocia in the early 2nd millennium BC. Mesopotamian influence can be seen in the use of hematite and elements such as the worshiper before the seated deity and the sun disk inside a crescent. Typically Cappadocian, however, is the crowded composition with a standing man and many animals. The people of this region had contact with the Mesopotamians and also with the Assyrians, who established a trading center in the region.
