Nippur Expedition 5
III: Events
Doors swung on posts and rested on cavities in stones such as this door socket, which contains an inscription of King Shulgi (Ur's Third Dynasty), recounting his rebuilding of the temple of Inanna, goddess of love and war. A joint archaeological expedition of the University of Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania discovered the temple in the city of Nippur in Iraq.
