Summary
Cylindrically-shaped sals first appeared int he second half of the fourth millennium B.C, gradually replacing the more traditional stamp seals. Cylinder seals are interesting not only for the past functional uses and for what they reveal about ancient Near Eastern culture and society--but the representations rendered by the seals are a worthy art form. This book discusses over 700 seals, including a large number of Syrian seals. --Publisher description
