A bronze cylinder seal, accompanied by a museum-quality impression and a typed and signed scholarly note issued by the late W.G. Lambert, Professor of Assyriology at the University of Birmingham, 1970-1993, which states: 'The design, which is deeply cut into the surface, consists of four parts. The largest is a fish-goat: goat at the front, tail of a fish, the smallest is perhaps a fly or a bird, and the item of middle size is not certainly identified. The item under the goat's head is also not identified. This is a rare type seal dating to c. 1200-900 B.C. The seal is in very good condition, and the metal has been conserved.'
