from royal tombs, depicts "Shubad, the Lady."
Publication described real seal, not just the cast:
UE II: Cylinder seal, lapis lazuli. Inscription SUB-ad nin. Worn on the right arm.
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."
Cast of BM 121544 from the British Museum.
