This is only known bronze/copper alloy vessel inscribed with the name of Utu-hegal, king of Uruk. Utu-hegal was considered a hero, who drove the hated Gutian invaders out of Southern Mesopotmia. The inscribed cuneiform text mentions the name and titles of the king but mainly concentrates on the cursing formula (which curses anyone who tries to deface the writing). From Uruk, Southern Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. Neo-Sumerian Period, reign of Utu-hegal, 2123-2113 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
