Cylinder Seal with Figures Before an Enthroned Figure


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The scene depicts a nude, standing figure with arms crossed in front of him (figure has no feet, and the lower part of the left forearm missing). In front of the nude, bound (?) figure stands a second figure in a long robe, facing a deity with horned headdress, and one foot resting in space on what might have been the intended place for a foot stool. There is nothing in the field. Incorporated into the scene is a cuneiform inscription of three registers.
