Nebuchadnezzar Cylinder 3D Model
This Nebuchadnezzar cylinder is from the Late Babylonian Period and is made of clay. This cylinder is inscribed with a proclamation of Nebuchadnezzar II, called “The Great.” It commemorates his restoration of the Temple of Shamash, the sun god in the city of Larsa. It reads in part, “Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, Restorer of the Temples of A-so-gilal and A-see-ta, First Born Son of Nabopolassar King of Babylon, am I.” Nebuchadnezzar did not lack an ego. Cylinders like this were sent out as a form of newswire to various parts of the empire informing the people of the deeds of their king. This was one of six such cylinders made, only one other of which has survived.
Date: 605-562 BCE
