Pendant/dangle shaped like a plant stem with a number of oval fruits projecting from the sides. Double stringer and stem appear to be gold foil over silver. Cracked carnelian bead at end of stem, three detached fruits of gold foil over bitumen.
CBS Register: Gold diadem of Queen Shubad. Animal figures, leaves, fruits, on background of blue beads.
The two cuneiform signs that compose her name were initially read as "Shub-ad" in Sumerian. Today, however, we think they should be read in Akkadian as "Pu-abi."
