Description: This stele, rounded at the top, carries an inscription which is the earliest understandable historical text from Mesopotamia. Eannatum fought Umma because some time previously King Ush of Umma had broken the stele placed between Umma and Lagash by Mesilim. The Gu-edina (annexed land - "Garden of Eden") was returned after the battle portrayed here.
