Long Rectangular Seal 30

Another exceptionally well-preserved seal. Shown in the Image 2 [above] with its sealing from Shah, S. G. M. and A. Parpola, Corpus of Indus Seals and Inscriptions. 2. Collections in Pakistan (p. XXV), who write:

"The normal type of rectangular seals has a profile that is straight on the front side and convex on the back side with a hole for the suspension cord going through the middle ([footnote] the arch of the back is usually smooth, sometimes edged, but as this distinction is often a question of degree, it is not systematically noted in the Corpus.) Whenever the side profile is rectangular, or the back has a boss similar to that of the square seals, this is shown by publishing the relevant side (s)."
