The form of this limestone cylinder is unusual. Most Mesopotamian examples are barrel-shaped and made of clay. This small limestone example is in the shape of a geometric cylinder, with parallel sides and flat ends. It is a twin to another cylinder in the British Museum, no. 91085. There are two other known examples with the same inscription, one on a stone tablet in a private collection and another also on another stone tablet, once offered by Elias S. David to the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, possibly to be identified as the example presented here (see D. Frayne, Early Old Babylonian Period, 2003--1595 B.C. 4 RIM.22.214.171.124.1).
