This stone bowl has two sets of cuneiform inscriptions. The first one says that the bowl was booty brought to Mesopotamia from Magan (modern Sultanate of Oman) by the Akkadian king Naram-Sin (2254-2218 BCE). The second inscription mentions that later, the daughter of King Shulgi of Ur III, dedicated the bowl to the moon god Sin at Ur (2094-2047 BCE). (The British Museum, London).
