The sealstone is one of the finest works of prehistoric Greek art ever discovered.
|Archaeologists excavating an ancient grave at Pylos in southwestern Greece in 2016 found a seal stone, a gemstone engraved with a design that can be stamped on clay or wax. The seal stone’s image is a striking depiction of one warrior in battle with two others. It is carved in fine detail. The seal stone’s owner, known as the Griffin Warrior, was buried around 1450 B.C.
|Grave goods included four solid gold rings, silver cups, precious stone beads, fine-toothed ivory combs and an intricate sword, among other weapons.|
