Mr Mir, our fiendly eBay frauster whose customers think is very nice and helpful, has quite a number of quite badly made fake cylnder seals. Here are just three . Many more there.

Everything has to be genuine because his web site features a You Tube video of his recent grave robbing trip to Iraq. Shows him hightailing it over the border with Nebuchadnezzar's stuff, hot lead flying from AK-47's the whole while. What a guy to put himself in personal danger to offer the antiquities world such wonderful stuff, and at bargain basement prices! No, I'm not serious.

This bad seller manages to sell so called cunieform tablets such as most definitely never existed in ancient times.
Look at these ridiculous things!
The buyers on eBay who fall for such as these simply don't know anything at all about such artefcts.

P.T. Barnum here wouldn't try swindling someone familiar with this silliness. Obviously targeting the other 7.887 billion on Earth.


Here is another  fake thing from Mr Mir which is badly copied from a well known original in the British Museum

Alabaster bas-relief showing Assyrian soldiers holding the decapitated heads of their defeated enemy before Assyrian musicians. Neo-Assyrian Period, 865-860 BCE. Detail of Panel 6 (top), Room B, the North-Palace Palace, Nimrud, modern-day Iraq. (The British Museum, London)



Wonder where the birdie came from?
Search on google images and hey presto, this pair appear side by side! :o)

Happy, satisfied cudstomers continue to spend a lot of money on Mr Mir's badly made fakes.
(Many of his fakes are however quite well made)


Yet more fake pieces from this notorious seller which are copied from artefacts in the Louvre Museum.
Here the fake masker missed the important detail that the legs of the throne are anumal legs.
