Description: It is not quite certain where this head of a god with horned crown (see also Andre Parrot, Sumer, translated by Stuart Gilbert and James Emmons, London, Thames & Hudson, 1960, Illustration 222, p. 185, text p. 182) belongs within the Gudea Larsa periods, but the level in which it was found at Tello is said to date from the Third Dynasty of Ur (Parrot thought it earlier).
