Description (Catalog Card) : [A] Copper Pin. Rounded in section. Copper ball head on bitumen core. Adhering to the pin a [B] Cylinder Seal of shell. The stem of the pin is perforated and has a small copper ring attached to it. Originally the seal was probably suspended by a string attached to the ring on the copper pin; the string decayed and the seal became corroded onto the pin. Type V. Figs. obliterated: probably 2 heroes fighting 2 rampant beasts. The copper set in bitumen was probably really the cap of the seal; the cap fell off onto the pin which has an elongated knob head.
