Description: Inscription records that it was dedicated for the life of Eannatum by an official who built a temple for Ningirsu, but we do not know whether it is the first king of that name or his grandson. The ruler, wearing a tufted skirt, is followed by 2 smaller figures, one with a beaker for libations and the other with a staff. Im-dugud slaying 2 lions covers the rest of the surface. -- White limestone, h : 12.7 cm (British Museum).
