Abstract The first volume of the catalogue „Corpus der Stempelsiegel-Amulette aus Palästina/Israel“ (1997) was enthusiastically received by many reviewers. „With this volume, sigillography truly enters a new era“ (A. Lemaire, Biblical Archaeology Review). „The importance of this work cannot be overestimated. Whole fields of scholarship now have a new and solid foundation for further research“ (W.E. Aufrecht, Catholic Biblical Quarterly). „The catalogue presents by far the biggest number of such objects from legal excavations. The presentation, description and interpretation are of an unsurpassable standard.“ (O. Loretz, Ugarit-Forschungen).

What was begun in 1997 has been developed much further. Volume I published 2,139 objects from 22 sites (places whose name begins with A). Volume II presented 1,224 stamp-seal amulets from 45 sites (from B-E). Volume III added 1,009 more mainly from Tell el-Far˓ah-South. Now one more volume, volume IV of this “extensive and unique opus“ (W. Zwickel, Zeitschrift des Deutschen Palästinavereins), is available. It brings the total number to 5,597. If one adds the 716 items from Jordan published by Eggler and Keel in 2006 the total amounts to 6313. The new volume gives access to the glyptic finds of 30 more sites (G-H). Especially numerous are the objects from Tel Gamma /Tell Jemmeh in the south (213), Gezer in the centre (691) and Hazor (117) in the north. Chronologically, they cover almost all the periods from the Chalcolithic (particularly Ha-Goscherim) down to the Persian period (isolated finds from different sites).

Like the earlier volumes this volume presents indispensable material not only for the archaeology of Palestine/Israel, the historiography of the southern Levant and Egyptology, but also for biblical scholarship. As in volume I this material is documented through photographs, drawings and detailed descriptions. In most cases numerous parallels are provided, placing each single object in its precise chronological and cultural context.
