Archaeologists have discovered over 2,000 clay seal impressions at Doliche, an ancient Roman site located in present-day Turkey. These seals range from 0.5cms to 2cms in size and have images of gods and different symbols inscribed on them. The seal impressions were found in the remains of an archive building at the site and it is believed that they were used to fasten government documents between the mid-2nd and mid-3rd centuries AD. Doliche was an important religious centre and the discovery of these seals will shed light on the religious and administrative practices that were followed in the city.
