A pair of Neo-Babylonian chalcedony stamp seals, 6th - 5th Century BC, the first is thimble-shape with horizontal hole for suspension, on base a decorated altar, (15 x 12 mm), the second seal is roughly rectangular with two large flattened sides and drilled hole for suspension, on base a sacred tree, (22 x 12 x 6 mm). Both with a lovely white patina where some of the surfaces have started to opalize from long exposure in a wet environment wherever these seals had rested the past 2500 years.
