So-called "head of Hammurabi"[edit]

Head of a prince whose reign was likely anterior to that of Hammurabi, given the cut of the beard and the hair (non solo la barba e i capelli simmetricamente ondulati, ma anche le sopracciglia unite a spina di pesce e la tiara a calotta, cfr. in questo caso Gudea di Lagash XXII sec. a.C. , indicano un periodo intorno al XIX sec. a.C., quindi è molto difficile che possa rappresentare Hammurapi). On display at the Louvre [1]
Beginning of the 2nd millenium, Susa.
Diorite.
