Rogers: A large inch and a half crystal seal. The design is made into a panel by a line one eighth of an inch from each edge of the seal. The entire seal is given over to symbols, only some of them can be distinguished, as the Tree of Life, the sun disk, fish, etc. Porada: Two kneeling winged genii grasping streams that fall from a winged sun-disk above a tree, between them, and extending their other hands towards the wings. Terminal: a star above a rhomb beside a bull's head, above a fish.
