This cone-shaped seal amulet is decorated all round with the following scene: a lying hare, a lion marching to the right, two standing human figures, the second of which holds a long staff or sceptre, and another quadruped followed by four circles. The base of this seal shows the Canaanite god Baal, standing on the back of a lion. He is winged and wears a high, horned crown.
