Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The scene on this seal depicts a standing deity in a horned headdress and long robe, resting one foot on an animal (?). In the field before this deity there is a small animal (possibly a monkey), followed by a worshipper in a short tunic, a small child, and a standing goddess in a flounced robe wearing a horned headdress and posed with both arms raised. Behind this goddess is a brief inscription, and then a final figure in short tunic, holding bent object, followed by another line of signs.
