Ancient Sumerian reddish brown stone cylinder seal with wonderful animal contest scene with rearing stallions and sacred tree. Measures one inch long by 3/8 inches wide and has the traditional drill hole down the center to allow it to be carried or displayed on a pin or cord. The rearing animal to the left of the sacred tree appears to have a unicorn like horn which, if this is what is intended, would be one of the very first representations of the unicorn in the history of art.
