Chapter Summary

In her groundbreaking work on Old Babylonian seals, studied through their impressions, L. Al- Gailani-Werr (1988) has proposed a general line of evolution for the Old Babylonian Sippar glyptic which is briefly summarized in this chapter in order to have a comparative background for our description of the sanga seals. A preliminary remark should be made about the limitations of our corpus. Although it consists of 186 texts, only 97 of them have seal impressions. The identification of each sanga seal is either based on the seal inscription or on a byscript written over the impression. This information is then combined with the findings collected in the preceding parts of this study. The distinction between seal owners and seal users is also based on these.

Keywords: corpus; L. Al- Gailani-Werr; sanga seals
