Pendant/dangle consisting of three spherical fruits and three poplar-type leaves. Double stringer is gold foil-over-silver. Incomplete and fragmentary. One badly squashed fruit with much of gold foil covering missing; other two fruits completely missing.
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."
