Cylander of Pu-abi
This cylinder seal was discovered in the Royal Cemetery at Ur. It is engraved with a
banquet scene. The cuneiform inscription on this seal reads 'Pu-abi nin'. It is
possible that Pu-abi may have been a high priestess in the service of the moon god,
Nanna. The seal is made from lapis lazuli, which would have come from
Afghanistan. This not only shows the extensive trade routes that existed at this time,
but also how important Pu-abi was, owning an object made of such an exotic
material.

Ashurnasirpal which is repeated over
many of his reliefs. It records the king's

Sumerian Headdress
This headdress has gold leaves separated by

on the forehead of one of a female attendant
in a royal Sumerian tomb. The other
attendants wore necklaces of gold and lapis
lazuli, gold hair ribbons, and silver hair rings.
Gold, silver, lapis, and carnelian were not
natural to Mesopotamia. This is indicative of
the wealth of Sumeria and that a sophisticated
system of trade extended far beyond the river
valley.
