Seals & Amulets Recovered From Ancient Temple

(Forschungsstelle Asia Minor)
MÜNSTER, GERMANY--More than 600 stamp and cylinder seals were discovered by archaeologists from the University of Münster at the temple of Jupiter Dolichenus on the Turkish mountain Dülük Baba Tepesi. Many of the seals, made between the seventh and fourth centuries B.C., are carved with scenes of worship and ritual, geometric designs, animals, and people. “Even those images that do not depict a deity express strong personal piety: with their seals, people consecrated an object to their god which was closely associated with their own identity,” said researcher Michael Blömer. The site had been used for religious purposes from the first millennium B.C. through the Crusader period.
