This clay seal with floral design is a typical example of a seal. Seals were used as ‘signature’ to authenticate and identify a person’s written deed and to issue authority. Seals were also made of carved semi precious stones, usually with calligraphy or intricate patterns depending on the wealth and status of the person.
