Incomplete flat rectangular cloth seal. The seal comprises two rectangular plates riveted together at the complete end. The obverse shows the name of the searcher, reading over two lines: RICHA[RD]/GRIG[ ]. The reverse is very worn and only the number 2 is visible. This belongs to a series of seals with rectangular parts, all having the full name of the searcher on one side, and on the other a proforma stamp for length, weight and width of the particular textile (Egan, 1994, p86).

Inscription: RICHARD GRIG[
