Impression of a Babylonian blue chalcedony conical stamp-seal from c. 700-550 BCE. On the base, beneath a crescent, a worshipper in a fringed robe stands facing the goddess of healing, Gula, who sits on her star-studded throne which rests on her reclining dog; she raises one hand, and in the other she holds a ring and the dog's lead.
