Gold diadem, oblong in middle with small hole on each end for attachment.
This is one of six gold diadems that were found on the skull of the body in grave PG 1422 at the Royal Cemetery at Ur. It is made of hammered sheet gold and is too short to have wrapped fully around the head; the holes punched at the ends were for a string or leather tie.
