Grey-brown chalcedony cylinder seal; a beardless worshipper in a fringed robe stands facing left, points with his raised right hand and extends the other palm up. Facing him, one on either side, are two indentical bearded gods who wear square, globe-topped head-dresses and tiered, vertically striated open robes over fringed kilts, with a sword at the waist and crossed, globe-tipped bow-cases on their backs; they raise their right hands and hold a ring in their left. Behind the gods are the Pleiades, above a diagonal fish; in front of the worshipper is a crescent, above the wedge or stylus of Nabu, and behind him is a rhomb, set diagonally. Line borders at top and bottom. Edges chipped, particularly the lower one. Slightly convex ends.
