Jones 1990 Old Babylonian forged inscription This stone cruciform monument from Sippar, southern Mesopotamia (Iraq), is an ancient forgery, most likely created during the Old Babylonian period (first half of the second millennium BC) but purporting to be of the reign of Manishtushu, King of Akkad (c. 2276-2261 BC). It was discovered in 1881 during excavations on behalf of the British Museum at the site of ancient Sippar in a neo-Babylonian context (seventh to sixth century BC). All twelve sides of the monument are covered with an inscription, the bulk of which deals with the renovation of the temple of Shamash and the very substantial increases in revenue that the temple received from the king. It ends: 'this is not a lie, it is indeed the truth . . . He who will damage this document let Enki fill up his canals with slime . . .' The monument comes into the category known as a fraus pia, or 'pious fraud'. It was probably produced by the temple priests in order to establish the great antiquity of the privileges and revenues of their temple, thus strengthening the temple's claim to them. Literature: I. Gelbe, 'Journal of Near Eastern Studies' (1949), pp. 346ft; E. Sollberger, 'The Cruciform Monument', Jaarbericht ex oriente lux xx (1968)., Moulded and cast; cast priced at 9 shillings by D. Brucciani (1910) and catalogued as "cross-shaped stone object with an inscription in archaic Babylonian characters". The cast is listed as available in the British Museum Facsimile Service 'Catalogue of Replicas from British Museum collections' (n.d.), in the series "Monuments of Early Kings".
