Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Seal of the Sanga contains the table of contents, a list of abbreviations, preface and the introduction. This study grew out of the very simple question whether, during the Old Babylonian period, some people had distinctive seals revealing by their design and legend the function or social role of their owner. The authors started their investigation with a few basic principles, to be verified in the course of their work. The mention of a person, in casu a sanga of Å?amaÅ?, in the text and the impression of his seal on the envelope are complementary in such a way that even the absence of the one in presence of the other is, in the case of the sanga of Å?amaÅ?, to be considered as meaningful. The study of the sanga seals was facilitated through the indispensable and essential works of D.Collon.

Keywords:Šamaš; Old Babylonian period; sanga seals
