Rogers: A yellowish-translucent seal. Much of the engraving on this seal is done with the frill. As a result the priest, with raised arms, lookes somewhat like a windmill. About his head is the crescent moon. Two symbols appear on the altar. Porada: A worshipper before an altar supporting a spade(?) and a lamp on a stand. In the sky: a crescent.
