Abstract
Eleven years of excavation on Field A yielded a small but noteworthy assemblage of glyptic material. Thirty objects – cylinder seals, stamp seals as well as rollings and impressions of seals – produced 22 distinct designs, stemming from contexts encompassing the Middle Bronze Age II until the Iron Age III. One seal impression was unearthed from Field C – the area of the city wall – namely Design 23. Field A is located at the central part of the tell and generated a full, continuous archaeological sequence, spanning from the Early Bronze Age IV (ca. 2400 BCE) up to the Iron Age III period (ca. 500 BCE), with architectural remains of dwellings, graves and – from the Early Iron Age on – an official building complex.
