In all the years I have been a collector I have never before come across a Hyksos cylinder seal and I cannot recall ever seeing one on the market.

This is not a pretty thing but it's extremely rare.

A small cylinder seal in a blue stone which looks like lapis but I'm not entirely certain that it is. Showns two internally hatched standing figures, a ureaus cobra and a lion vertically disposed and the typical Hyksos ANRE inscription.

Quite worn and makes only a feint impression in plasticine.

17mm x 6mm

Hyksos/15th dynasty. circa 1600 BC.

Ex Israeli collection. Said to have been found in Egypt.

The green stuff on the seal is a little plasticine!

Price: sold GBP
