Definition 2002-10-11 lR seal impression [Input: MX12LR4.j]
Description (summary) 2002-10-11 lR Pottery sherd with a seal impression rolled on the outer surface. This sherd shows only a portion of the rolling with three clear boundaries (top, bottom, and one side) visible. The rolling continues but only the last segment remains. The impression shows a seated figure on a small stool with arms bent at the elbow and hands working something that sits on top of a table next to him (table is not complete, broken to the left). The figure faces left and is in profile with a circular hollow denoting the eye. The hands are touching/working something but it is not clearly defined. Close to the head of the figure a small line with two items on top of this line are distinguished. This line appears to be a shelf holding the completed pieces that the figure had produced. The object look like upside-down jars. Another figure lies to the left of the first figure also in profile facing the first figure. This figure appears to be standing with hands touching the table and is cut at the left making further description difficult. This sealing may be interpreted as a cook or potter's seal. The sherd itself is chaff tempered and contains lines caused by smoothing the jar on the inner surface. [Input: MX12LR4.j]
