King Rim-Sin I was the last ruler of the Dynasty of Larsa in southern Babylonia, which was overtaken by Hammurabi in 1764 B.C. The inscription on this tablet dedicates the restoration of the Temple E-a-ga-ga-kilib-ur-ur or “House which gathers all decrees” to Ninegal by Rim-Sin's wife, Simat-Eshtar. Ninegal is better known by her Sumerian name Inanna, the goddess of love and war. The inscription is also found on five other examples, three in the British Museum, one in the National Museum in Stockholm, and one sold by Christie's, New York, 13 December 2013, lot 35 (see D.R. Frayne, Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia, Early Periods, vol. 4., The Old Babylonian Period, pp. 293-294, no. 16(5)). Additionally, the same inscription is found on the stone tablet, lot 116 in the present sale.
