A circular clay seal with an incised circle inside, which was probably used in the church, to stamp objects and to bless them. The circle encloses decorative elements composed of a six-pointed star, within which are six triangles surrounding a small circle.

In Christianity, the star symbolizes the star in the east that the Three Kings saw at the time of the birth of Christ.
