Umma-Lagash Cone 3D Model
Late Early Dynastic period clay cone with an inscription by King Enmetena recounting the conflict between his city Lagash and the neighboring city Umma. The account culminates in his victory and a redrawing of the border. It is presumed that this cone stood among other markers to denote the boundaries. The bottom of the cone resembles a net and corresponds to a warning to natives of Umma that foreign invaders would be ensnared in the net of the god Enlil!
