Although a recent publication has noted the many unique attributes of this seal, its authenticity has not been seriously challenged. See Benjamin Sass, “The Pre-exilic Hebrew Seals: Iconism and Uniconism,” in Studies in the Iconography of Northwest Semitic Inscribed Seals, ed. Sass and Christoph Uehlinger (Göttingen: Vandenhoech and Ruprecht, 1993), p. 242.
