Archaeologists working in Pakistan have unearthed a seal featuring the image of an ibex which dates back to 2,500 B.C.

The seal is almost square in shape and slightly broken on the right side but the figure of the ibex is almost intact.

The muscles, genitalia, hooves and tail of the ibex were engraved artistically with a high degree of skill and craftsmanship.

The Punjab University team also conducted excavations at Sui-Vihar, which was the only existing example of Sankhya doctrines in Pakistan.
