That is really nice, I do not own a Lead Seal but if I saw that up for sale I would definately buy it.

Congratulations on a really nice find
Pete

quadrans:
Thank you Pete

Gert:
Yes, that's a nice quadriga seal. I think it dates to the beginning of the 4th century, and it is published in the supplement of Leukel, Römische Bleiplomben aus Trierer Funden, N226-240. There, the depiction is described as 'two Victories in two bigas to right', but I think it is more probably just one quadriga with a second Victory flying above. This is quite a common seal, which might indicate that it is an imperial seal, not a personal one.

Gert

quadrans:
