This baked-mud brick was stamped with the name of king Warad-Sin, king of Larsa; reigned 1770-1758 BCE (short chronology) and possible co-regency with his father Kudur-Mabuk. The cuneiform inscriptions mention the building of the temple of "E-Nun-Makh" at Ur and its dedication to the moon god on behalf of himself and his son Rim-Sin. From Ur, southern Mesopotamia, Iraq. Isin-Larsa period. (The British Museum, London)
