Circular seal die made of walrus ivory, engraved on both sides, with projecting lentoid handle at the top which is decorated on one side and plain on the other. Its tip is broken away. The decoration on the handle consists of the God the Father and Son in relief, enthroned over a prostrate human figure; above them is the damaged symbol of the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove. The matrix on this side is engraved with the half-length figure of a bearded man facing left in a circular frame, a sword held upright in his right hand, his cloak clasped at the shoulder. Round this, within an incised frame, is a retrograde inscription. The matrix on the reverse bears the figure of a woman seated on a cushion, facing left, her right hand raised and her left holding a book. Around this, within a circular frame, runs another retrograde inscription.
