The Illustration: Seal M-300A * #Indus 2600 BC. Function of Seals - Sealing of goods to denote ownership - Identify the mother country of the merchant - Identify the origin of the traded commodity without opening the bundle of goods, thus facilitating storage, taxation, further shipment and other functions. - Some seals may have been used by religious leaders for special ceremonies and others by landowners and traders - The f evidence of seals, writing and weights appeared in stage III - Early seals were small and light, square in shape with a small boss at the back - Seals bore figures or mythological scenes but no inscriptions - Late Harappan seals were mostly rectangular bearing inscriptions only without any figures or scenes. (1900-1700 BC) (Stage VI) By 2600 BC, specialised engravers made seals with writing on the reverse so that when stamped in clay, it formed a raised positive message. Artisans used or wooden moulds to produce numerous copies of inscriptions or narrative scenes on fired terracotta and glazed faience tablets. Potters used seals to impress writing on pottery vessels, usually disposable drinking cups. Moulds for making large pottery vessels were incised on the exterior, possibly to identify the owner of the mould itself. Steatite seals The soft soapstone was , polished, and fired in a kiln to whiten and harden the surface. Only after the outside had been hardened could the seal be used to stamp wet clay. Square Seals These seals usually have a line of the script along the top of the seal and a carved animal in the central portion. Animals depicted include male domestic, wild and mythical beasts. A small feeding trough or an offering stand is often placed below the head of the animal. Some seals contain more complex iconographic scenes that represent or relieving.
