The design shows two pairs of contestants: a
rearing lion-griffin about to bite the snout of a
gazelle sitting on a hillock, and a bull with
human face grappling with a rearing lion.
Between these pairs in an inverted Lahmu-
hero holding a jar at his waist.
This is an Old Babylonian seal, c. 1900-1600
B.C. It is a less common type, very well
engraved and in good condition.
