The article which had been originally dedicated to the late Armenian Academician Gagik Sarkisian describes a Babylonian clay tablet document from the collection of the Vorderasiatisches Museum Berlin (inventory number VAT 952). The text of the document is a contract dealing with the terms of delivery of 960 bundles of reed. It is dated with the third full year of reign of king Samsuiluna, the successor of 'Ammurapi. On the cover of the tablet some not very well preserved seal impressions can be found . The authors attempt to (partly) reconstruct these seal impressions, which are connected with people involved in the contract. One of the better preserved impressions shows two formally interconnected battle scenes, one between a man and a lion, the other between a men and a lion-dragon. Although these kind of scenes are rarely to be met with on Old Babylonian seals, the given impression can be compared to a well preserved representation of a similar scene on a clay tablet from Sippar.
