Lugal-Dalu was probably a local ruler of Adab. The inscriptions on the statue's right shoulder describe the depicted man as "king of Adab" and the statue as an offering to the temple of the god Esar (or E-Shar), the greatest god of the city of Adab. From Adab (modern Bismaya, Wasit Governorate, Iraq), Sumer, Southern Mesopotamia, Iraq, mid-third millennium BCE. (Istanbul Archeological Museums/Ancient Orient Museum, Istanbul, Turkey).
