Black serpentine cylinder seal; contest scene of three separated groups- bearded sun-god with rays, standing sideways but with face turned in front, wearing a skirt and grasping a long-haired bull-man from behind by the hair and tail; the bull-man holds a mace in his left hand and grasps the sun-god's left arm. Antithetical group consisting of two-human-headed bulls in the centre (full-face) being protected by a bearded hero (full-face) naked except for a belt, and by a bearded hero who is wearing his hair in a bun, an outward flaring cap decorated with fluting, and a skirt. N.B the sun-god has replaced the lion as the bull-man's opponent.
