Broadly banded green and colourless, almost transparent but with red-brown inclusions, chalcedony cylinder seal; a bearded, robed worshipper (or priest?), with his hair in a fillet, stands facing right, pointing with his raised right hand and extending the other palm up. He faces the goddess Gula who is robed, wears her hair in fillet, raises her right hand, holds a ring in the other and stands in a reversed 'L'-shape with drill-holes attached, on the back of her couchant dog. Behind her stands a winged? deity, probably the god Ninurta (head chipped) also facing left, with right hand raised, holding a mace just below the head in the other hand, wearing an open robe, a sword and crossed quiver and bow-case. Between each pair of figures are, respectively, a star, a rhomb and the tasselled spade of Marduk. Line borders at top and bottom, cut as short strokes rather than one continuous line. Edges chipped with one large chip over the god's head. Slightly barrel-shaped. The seal is competently cut using cutting-wheel and drill, but finer details of dress and facial features are lacking.
