Woolley reported that this double-register banquet scene was found against the end of the “wardrobe box” in the fill above the floor. This cylinder seals differs from B16728 in two aspects: here both male and female participants are depicted, and there is no musical performance. A personal name read in Sumerian as A-bara-ge is inscribed in three vertically arranged cuneiform signs to the side of the scene in the upper register.
