This Ubaid seal is typically decorated with stylized animals not entirely reduced to geometric forms, a development from earlier stamps engraved with simple linear patterns. Two long-horned quadrupeds stand facing left. The seal has a tanged extension that thickens at the top into a perforated loop.
