This partially mutilated head mace was inscribed with an Akkadian cuneiform script, which mentions that this stone head mace is a votive offering dedicated by La-arab, king of Gutium. Although they left little evidence of their rule, it appears they the Guti adopted the Mesopotamian culture and religious traditions. From Sippar, Southern Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. Circa 2150 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
