Rogers: A medium sized brown stone seal. Here the worshiper, Shala, stands with raised hands, before the God. Between the two figures are three symbols, - a crescent moon indicating the presecense of the Moon-God, a Caduceus, and a small animal. The third figure is separated from the God by a fish and a human head. Porada: A long-robed deity, and a god with a mace facing a suppliant goddess. In the field: a bird over a fish over a human head; a crescent over a fly over a mongoose.
