Seals are not really my area of expertise. I would probably be inadequate to interpret the images. What I think I see is a personage in profile, relating to a winged griffin.

Wikipedia (conveniently) says: "In Iranian mythology, [a] griffin is called Shirdal [and] means: Lion-Eagle. The Shirdal has appeared in ancient art of Iran since late second millennium BC.[9] Shirdals appeared on cylinder seals from Susa as early as 3000 BC.

I suppose the iconography would be fairly well-known (as to fakers).
