Chapter Summary

This book concludes that even the sangas did not have seals with a scene that could instantly and without doubt be recognized as typical for sanga seals. The investigation proposes that no profession or social group had distinctive seals in this sense. This chapter remarks that both first and second sangas had seals with caps but neither the overseer of the nadiatum nor the sangas of the Edikuda. Although in the course of the Old Babylonian period many seals had a legend this certainly was not the case for the majority of them. As to the use of his father’s seal by Sîn-bāni, this was done to stress the link with the Marduk temple of which his father was a sanga. This study allows readers to insight into the families of sangas of the Ebabbar and has given a glimpse of the sangas of the Edikuda in Sippar-Amnānum.
