Morgan Seal 3
Provenance: 
Acquired by Pierpont Morgan sometime between 1885 and 1908
Notes: 

"Seal 3 has been interpreted by E.D. Van Buren as showing priests performing a rite before a shrine. However... it is difficult to judge the character of the figures with certainty, although nudity has often been taken to distinguish priests in representations of later periods." Porada, CANES, p. 3
