    This square seal in Phagspa script has a trapezoidal knob. The face of the seal is carved in three rows of Phagspa seal script with the name of an official title, indicating it belonged to a commanding officer of the Yuan imperial armies. The top is carved in Chinese with the corresponding official title in regular script as well as the bureau that manufactured it (Ministry of Rites) and the date, which corresponds to 1287 and thus puts it during the reign of the Mongol ruler Kublai Khan in the Yuan dynasty of China.
