The register states that "this date number is applied to Woolley Ur objects previously unregistered, but note that that their provenance is basically assumed from their place of storage and there have been many possibilities of confusion, e.g for pottery stored close to Khabur material, so that it cannot be entirely relied on unless the object has a U number or other positive evidence."
There is no image of this object, or there may be copyright restrictions
