An interesting black stone Old Babylonian cylinder seal showing the naked goddess to the side of a pair of worshippers.

What is especially interesting about this seal is that the original inscription has been smoothed away so as to allow a new inscription to be cut. This re-use of seals was not uncommon.

The last pic compares the iconography with another seal of similar style.
