* A Mesopotamian Triangular Pendant Seal, Late Chalcolithic Period, ca. 4500-3200 BCE

MA2012

The tapering shape of this pendant seal is unusual and has not exact parallels although the deeply incised schematic design is quite common in the late Neolithic period.

Provenance: Alex Malloy collection, acquired in the 1980s.
