Every single aspect of the object of study (types of seals and sealed documents, seal themes and motifs, depicted gods, symbols, rites, etc.) is systematically and meticulously covered, making the book an indispensable research tool for specialists in Assyrian and ancient Near Eastern art, iconography, religion, and related subjects.
