Pendant/dangle consisting of three spherical fruits and three poplar-type leaves. Double stringer is gold foil-over-silver. Incomplete: missing two fruits, third detached. Stringer segment also detached from leaf trefoil.
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."
