This brief article deals with a unique seal impression currently housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MMA 10.130.1563). Dating to the Ptolemaic Period, it belonged to a priest of the cults of Arsinoe and Philotera, but until now has not been analyzed in detail. The hieroglyphic text, transliteration, and translation is presented here along with a discussion of its date.
