Description (Catalog Card): Silver Bulls Head With long horns and inlaid eyes The muzzle has been damaged, and one of the horns broken off and re-attached. It came from a wooden statue, judging from the fact that nothing else was found to which it could have belonged: the shell plaques U.10917 A and B must have been on its chest as usual Photo 1020 (a)2

Location Context Title Context Description Description (Modern)
PG/800B This tomb chamber contained the remains of Queen Puabi, as identified by one of the cylinder seals on her body. Woolley associated it with the death pit above, to which he had assigned the designator PG/800, thus this chamber received the subletter B. Since the chamber floor is about 2.5 meters lower than the death pit floor, however, the two may actually be unrelated. (none)
