The object of this study is the so-called Talismanic stones. This group of seals is one of the largest groups of seals of Minoan Crete and they were produced between MM III and LMI. Despite the valuable contribution of Artemis Onassoglou, some unresolved questions about their social significance and their purpose still remain. Through a different approach aimed to re-think these materials from a social point of view, it was possible to make some initial steps forward for a better comprehension of this class of seals, such as the possibility of mobility specific political influence in time.
