Neo Elamite bronze bowl with cuneiform inscription, ca. 1st half of the 1st millennium B.C.

Size: 17 cm and 5,3 cm high

This bowl could be from an area near the Zagros mountains. There is no doubt that the name of the father is Elamite, since it's identical with a name which is already recorded in published documents. The ductus and the -na genitive suffix are typically Neo-Elamite. Therefore the inscription is datable to the first half of the 1st millennium BC.

Transliteration & translation: ši/ti?/-be-nu-pi DUMU me-na-na-na Ši/Ti?/benupi son of Menana

Condition: Walls and rim with inscription perfectly intact with fine patina. The bottom restored, rather nicely done. Fine sharp inscription.

Ex. Baltic collection, formerly in a US collection.
