This arrowhead was inscribed for Simbar-Sihu, the founding king of Dynasty V of Babylonia, the Second Dynasty of the Sea-Land. According to Sollberger, in Moorey, p. 52, op. cit., "Only two contemporary written documents from Simbar-Sihu's reign were hitherto known, but one is only a late copy of a royal inscription and the other a legal deed drawn up in the king's twelfth year. The arrowhead published here is therefore of special interest not only because it is, strictly speaking, the only truly contemporary inscription, but because it gives us the name of the king's father which had so far appeared only in two late chronicles. The new arrowhead, while not adding to our knowledge, at least confirms the authenticity of the chroniclers' sources." When published by Moorey in 1974, it was considered the earliest inscribed arrowhead known from western Iran.
