The image is too small to decipher. Also, this kind of seal script on bronze is hard to decipher anyway. Even if I could see it in person, it might take hours. Ancient seal script dates back to before 221 B.C.
In the meantime, many variations of each of more than 20,000 characters have emerged. They are like signatures, where each person who carves a character might have a different way to carve it.

Egyptian hieroglyphics are probably easier.
