Bilingual Cylinder Seal

Late Middle Kingdom

Not on view

This fragmentary lapis lazuli cylinder seal is inscribed in hieroglyphs :"King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Sehetepibre, [beloved of] Hathor, mistress [of Byblos]". On the opposite side it reads "Yakin-ilum....." Sehetepibre must be the second king of that name, who is a contemporary of Yakinilum, a known figure at the city of Byblos on the levantine coast.
