Chapter Summary

Our study of the attestations of the different sangas and their seals has provided us with a precise indication of the places on the cases and tablets where their seals were rolled. These were of course not haphazard and certain patterns were described for individual sangas. We can now summarize all these separate findings and, since our corpus spans over two centuries, see if general patterns emerge, evolving through time. It is clear that if these patterns exist they are part of the general sealing practices of their times. Our study can only contribute in a modest way to such a broader view.
