Caption: A chipped, rectangular seal with an everyday motif showing how riverboats were built, found in Mohenjo-Daro (Mound of the Dead) one of the largest city-settlements in the Indus Valley, now located in the province of Sind, Pakistan. The city was built around 2600 BCE and abandoned around 1900 BCE. The vessel on the seal has a shallow draft and cross lashing on bow and stern, which may signify reed construction. In the center is a small cabin and on the right can be seen part of the steering oar.
