Definition: Stele, Cylinder Seals, and Intaglio

For the sake of fewer individual posts to share all the new vocabulary I am learning, I’ll post out of order to group similar terms for more cohesive posts. I’m keeping track of it all that I’ll share at the end of the year, though, so no worries about me cheating in my counting! 🙂

In fact, I sometimes post the wrong count and only find out upon entering in a spreadsheet that I did, like with “stele” (read sh-TEE-lee, plural Stela) that was tweeted as 014 when it was really 016. You can also check the post counts to verify I am not cheating. 🙂

These terms are from ancient Mesopotamia, though some are still in use today, just not in the same form, obviously.
