Votive cone


Clay cone

Sin-kashid of Uruk (c. 1850 B.C.E.)

Sin-kashid separated the city-state of Uruk from the overall state of Larsa, thereby founding a 50-year dynasty. He was genealogically connected with Babylon and married a daughter of Sumula’el, the second king in the First Dynasty of Babylon.

This cone commemorates a building commissioned by Sin-kashid, and would have been placed in a wall or foundation.
