Serpent Symbol Indications on Dilmun seals in Failaka Island Community and their Harmony with the Signs and Practices of other Communities.

Auther : Dr. Majed A. AL-Mutairi

     There are many Dilmun seals on Failaka Island in several archaeological sites dating back to the Bronze age, and the only study examining seal groups from several archaeological sites on Failaka Island, was presented by the Paul Kjaerum (Danish archaeologist) in 1983, where he collected and classified Dimun seals from different sites such as: F3, F5, F6, which numbered at about 428. He described the Dilmun seals generally without specifying the symbol indications. Therefore, based on Kjaerum's study, this is the first paper that will discuss the common snake symbol on Dilmun seals to achieve the following important aspects. The first is to identify snake types in Kuwait State and in the Arabian Peninsula, and count how many Dilmun seals have the serpent symbol in  Kjaerum's study, and then classify them according to their location, and finally argue the compatibility of the snake symbol indications on Dilmun seals in the Failaka Island community with the signs and practices of other communities.
