Eanna-shum-iddina - Kudurru


The Eanna-shum-iddina kudurru is a boundary stone of governor Eanna-shum-iddina in the Sealand Dynasty of Babylon in the mid 2nd millennium BC. Sealand was the region of southern Mesopotamia along the Persian Gulf.

NB: The British Museum dates this kudurru to 1125-1100 BC:


The "Eanna-shum-iddina kudurru" was a land grant to a person named Gula-eresh, witnessed by his surveyor Amurru-bel-zeri. The iconography of the stone includes cuneiformtext, two middle registers with gods, and a larger upper, scenic register of gods, with sky–glyph representations of gods.
