Morgan Seal 654
Acquired by Pierpont Morgan sometime between 1885 and 1908.
"Seal 654 has been included here even though it is not certain that the man with a bird and a mouflon before him is meant for a worshiper. Consequently the ritual character of the scene remains in question. The seal does not conform in its engraving with any of the dated linear-style seals and its date is therfore uncertain."--Porada, CANES, p. 78
Bird above small kneeling animal before mouflon followed by worshiper(?); before latter, crescent, star, five globes, one above other.
