Inscribed Stone Block


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This irregularly shaped fragment features two rows of inscription on its smooth front side. It is impossible to determine whether this fragment was part of a wall, a stela, or another monument, and the inscription is nearly unintelligible. The first line may contain the clan name Dhu-Nadha'.
