The So-called Unicorn 24

[Original text, 1931] It should, however, be borne in mind that these animals may perhaps represent the dieties of provinces, in exactly the same way as do the 'nome' animals of Egypt, all of which are commonly shown on standards very similar to the ones carried by the men in the Mohenjo-daro impressions. There is, however, a serious argument against this latter theory. The unicorn type of animal occurs just as frequently on the seals from Harappa, 400 miles away, as at Mohenjo-daro, whcih would hardly be the case if the animal was the symbol of a province.
