This oval stone mace-head was inscribed with the name of Anum-mutabil (formerly read as Ilum-muttabbil), governor of the Babylonian city Dur-ilu. The cuneiform inscription reads "Ilum-muttabbil, mighty man, favorite of god Istaran, beloved of the goddess Estar, viceroy of Der, who defeated completely the army of Ansan, Elam, (and) Simaski, and aided Parahsum". Purchased from Cir Henry Rawlinson in 1851 CE. Old-Babylonian period, 2003-1595 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
