This kudduru (boundary stone) is a document which records the services of Ritti-Marduk, commander of the chariots, in a royal military campaign against Elam in southern Iran. As a reward, his ancestral territory was made exempt from taxation. Limestone, carved in high relief. Middle Babylonian Period, reign of Nebuchadnezzar I, 1125-1104 BCE. From Sippar (modern-day Tell Abu Habba), Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (The British Museum, London).
