Baked clay round
Lagash II, Gudea (c. 2141-2122 B.C.E.)
This object is a round baked brick, with a hole through it. The hole was probably added later, as it cuts through the inscribed text. It might have been transformed into a support of some kind for a staff or mace.
The inscription records Gudea’s rebuilding and restoration of the temple of Ningirsu at Lagash. There are other copies of this text on similar foundation bricks.
