First Dynasty of Isin, Lipit-Ishtar (reigned c. 1934-1923 B.C.E.)
Lipit-Ishtar of Isin was the fifth king of the First Dynasty of Isin. He instigated legal and economic reform through his “Code of Lipit-Ishtar.” He was involved with a number of building activities and most of the extant information about him is related to his Code or to his building projects, as attested by these cones.
These cones, both in Akkadian, have the very same text, but are different shapes. These cones would have been placed in the walls or foundation of buildings that Lipit-Ishtar commissioned.
