Neo-Babylonian period, Nabopolassar (reigned 625-605 B.C.E.)
This text is an account of vestments made for the gods. Items listed are red wool, headwear, and a girdle or belt. The vestments were probably placed on statues.
Nabopolassar was the first ruler of the Third Dynasty of the Sealand, which he achieved by declaring himself king of the area (the southern-most region of Babylonia, including the marshlands of the Persian Gulf) after the death of Ashurbanipal, the king of Assyria. Nabopolassar also became the first king of the so-called Neo-Babylonian Dynasty when he secured control over Syria at the end of his life.
