Stone), Babylon, reign of Marduk-nadin-ahhe.
A kudurru, the Akkadian term for boundary stone, combines images of the
king, gods, and divine symbols with a text recording royal grants of land
and tax exemption to an individual. While the original was housed in the
temple, a copy of the document was kept at the site of the land in question.
The king wears the tall Babylonian feathered crown and an elaborately
decorated garment with a honeycomb pattern. On the top are a sun disk,
star, crescent moon, and scorpion, representing deities who witnessed
the land grant and tax exemption. A snake-dragon deity emerges from a
row of altars shaped like templs facades along the back.
