|4-Winged Icons with Cursory Inscriptions|
x (cannot classify)
The seals on this page belong to David Diringer's Class 1. Aside from the icon design (which has been described as "articulated", "natural", or "realistic"), the bottom of the first letter in the LMLK inscription is positioned close to the icon's Head whereas x4L types (Diringer's Class 2)) positions it near the Forewing tip. In general, the inscriptions on these seals are best described as "cursory" or "crude" (i.e., they were incised rapidly with little attention to detail).
