Cylinder seal impression
A typical "introduction scene". A goddess introduces Hashhamer, governor of the city Ishkun-Sin, to the seated king Ur-Nammu, founder of the IIIrd dynasty of Ur (c. 2050 B.C.)
Another goddess is in attendance.
The inscription, in Sumerian reads:
'(O) Ur-Nammu, mighty male, King of Ur-Hash-hamer, governor of Ishkun-Sin, (is) thy servant'.
Ur III period, 2050 B.C. Green schist. 5'4 cm high x 3'2 cm diameter

Greenstone cylinder seal; a goddess wearing a striped robe and a multiple-horned head-dress stands with both hands raised behind a worshipper (owner of seal - Hash-hamer?) in a fringed robe, bald and clean-shaven, who raises his right hand.
He is being led by a second goddess in a flounced robe and multiple-horned who raises her left hand. They approach a deified king (possibly Ur-Nammu?) who is bearded, wears a plain robe with a double-rolled hem and a bracelet on his raised right wrist (he does not hold a cup). He is seated beneath the crescent moon on an elaborate throne with a curved back whose legs are shaped like a bull's, which stands on a two-step dais.
A double-line border runs above the scene; inscription. The execution of the design is of very high quality. One of the seated figure's feet, the front foot of the chair and the central part of the dais, have been erased, perhaps to mask a shallow chip.
