Footnotes

  • Literature:
    Hartshorne (1897), pp.278-279, fig.219 and p.242, note 2
    Bickerton (1971), fig.436
    Bickerton (1986), p.216, fig.644

    Hartshorne suggests that the indistinct moulding on the seals depicts a shield incorporating the arms 'a fesse between three garbs, in an arabesque border'.
