Location Context Title Context Description Description (Modern)
Rim Sin Temple | RS Along the city wall (CLW) in the southeast Woolley came across a relatively large building and spent some time investigating it. Here he found clay cones of Rim-Sin and a foundation deposit mentioning that this king had dedicated the building to the god Enki. Thus Woolley referred to the building as the Enki Temple of Rim-Sin or simply the Rim-Sin Temple. Legrain lists the abbreviation RS but the code does not appear on any field catalogue cards. Rim-Sin's ninth year is known as 'the year in which he built the temple of En-ki at Ur.' He probably made major restorations rather than founding the building, however, as there is an earlier, Amar-Sin, temple beneath. There are many inscribed bricks of this earlier king, but the early ground plan was mostly destroyed. (none)
