Unicorn seal 43

A steatite unicorn seal from Harappa with Indus script. This seal was found in the central area of Mound E and dates to Period 3B or early 3C, around 2450-2200 BCE. When pressed into clay the impression will be reversed. Since the Indus script may have been read from right to left, the last two signs visible at the top right hand edge of the seal would in fact be the last two signs of the inscription. They thus would be positioned in the same order as seen on the Early Harappan sherd (42) that dates up to four hundred years earlier. (More unicorn seals at 55, 64.)
