Roman lead seal - Dancing girl
Roman lead seal Dancing girl c. 3rd-4th century AD
Dancing girl, in long chiton, stole draped over right arm, turning around in dance, holding timbrel in each hand.
18x15x10mm; 9.85g; Conical shape; very fine; Ex Mnzzentrum 13-01-2010.

The dancing figure on this seal was conjectured by the MZ cataloguer to be Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Moses and Aron, who lead a dance after the Jews crossed the Red Sea (Exodus 15:19-32), but the pose is also typical of dancing nymphs and meanads.
