Ancient Mesopotamian Dinosaur on Cylinder Seal?

Seal and impression. Located at the Louvre Museum. Green jasper, 1.75" h, c. 3,300 B.C. Click and drag photo to resize. Script from The Java Script Source

Note the points of comparison between the head of the "Mesopotamium sauropod" and the skull of Diplodocus Longus, as highlighted in the graphic below. Click and drag to resize.

We had not previously made mention of the flying creatures (pterosaurs?) flying above the sauropods, but a sauropod identification certainly has an impact on the presumed size of these unbirdlike flying creatures, shown in more detail below.

Also, see proof (skeptics, take a deep breath first) that this same sauropod has been represented in the ancient art of many peoples, by clicking here
