Description

Found at Jokha. This is a typical record of the offerings. After the tablet was written, and while the clay was still soft, the temple scribe rolled over the entire tablet his cylindrical stone seal, and the seal impression made it impossible to change the record. The seal impression bears in raised characters the name of the scribe and of his father, the seated figure of a deity and the standing figure of a priest. It is dated about 2350 B.C.E.

Date

Circa 2350 B.C.E.
