Kudurru of Adad-etir

Kudurru d'Adad-etir

This kudurru dates from 900-800 BCE. It was commissioned by Marduk-balatsu-ikb in honour of his father, Adad-etir, known as the "dagger-bearer of Marduk". Both are represented on the stela, accompanied by divine symbols: winged solar disc, crescent, and lion-headed mace.
