Cylinder with Building Dedication

Babylonia (in present-day Iraq), 604-562 BC (Neo-Babylonian)

Baked clay, 23 cm high and 13 cm wide (9 in x 5 in)

In the first millennium BC, building dedications were written on cylinders with tapering ends, such as this, which were then concealed in walls. Here, the extensive text in three columns commemorates the rebuilding of the temple of the god Lugal-Marada at Marad by King Nebuchadnezzar II.
