<!-- == The site==
This temple had been razed and a fortress built upon its ruins, in the Greek or [[Seleucid]] period, some of the bricks found bearing the inscription in [[Aramaic]] and [[Greek language|Greek]] of a certain [[Hadad-nadin-akhe]], king of a small Babylonian kingdom. It was beneath this fortress that numerous statues of [[Gudea]] were found, constituting the prize of the Babylonian collections at the [[Louvre]]. These had been decapitated and otherwise mutilated, and thrown into the foundations of the new fortress. From this stratum also came various fragments of bas reliefs of high artistic excellence. The excavations in the other larger mound resulted in the discovery of the remains of buildings containing objects of all sorts in bronze and stone, dating from the earliest Sumerian period onward, and enabling the art history of Babylonia to be traced to a date some hundreds of years before the time of Gudea.
Apparently this mound had been occupied largely by store houses, where were stored not only grain, figs, etc., but also vessels, weapons, sculptures and every possible object connected with the use and administration of palace and temple. In a small outlying mound, de Sarzec discovered the archives of the temple — about 30,000 inscribed clay tablets containing the business records, and revealing with extraordinary minuteness, the administration of an ancient Babylonian temple, the character of its property, the method of farming its lands, herding its flocks, and its commercial and industrial dealings and enterprises; for an ancient Babylonian temple was a great industrial, commercial, agricultural and stock-raising establishment. Unfortunately, before these archives could be removed, the galleries containing them were rifled by looters, and large numbers of the tablets were sold to antiquity dealers, by whom they have been scattered all over Europe and America.
