Emblems of Identity and Prestige--The Seals and Sealings from Hasanlu, Iran

Photographs, with extensive commentary, of 105 seals and seal impressions from Tepe Hasanlu in southwestern Azerbaijan, Iran, dating to about 800 B.C.

Hardback / £43.00

The 105 seals and seal impressions in this catalog greatly expand the corpus of glyptic materials from northwestern Iran. The importance of this assemblage is enhanced by its discovery in a controlled stratified context. The distribution of the material in different buildings allows a unique look at the functioning of the glyptic system. In addition to detailed catalog entries, the author's insights and wide knowledge of iconography enrich the text. There are drawings and photographs for each entry.
