Ammonite artifacts provide a historical context for the Ba‘alis seal. While the Ba‘alis seal is the first object directly connected with the Ammonite ruler, it is not his first appearance in the archaeological record. This drawing shows the broad end of a clay cone, perhaps used as a stopper for a juglet. The impression reads, “Belonging to Milqom, servant of Ba‘alis.” Milqom presumably served as a high royal official. At center in the impression, a winged beetle pushes a ball of dung—the same iconography discussed by Frank Moore Cross in the preceding article, “King Hezekiah’s Seal Bears Phoenician Imagery.”
