These precious stones inscribed with cuneiform are in the Louvre’s collection.
The first is an agate bead from around 2000 BCE, inscribed in Sumerian:
To divine Nanna, his master,
Ibbi-Sin, god of his country,
strong king, king of Ur, king of the four regions,
has, for his life, dedicated this bead.
The second is chalcedony from around 1300 BCE, inscribed in Akkadian:
Nazi-Maruttash, king of the universe,
son of Kuri-Galzu, king of Babylon.
The one who destroys my inscribed name:
may Shamash and Adad destroy his name.
