The Queen´s Grave > The Sumerians - Queen Pu-Abi > The Queen´s Grave  |  Print  |  E-mail a friend
Like the king, Queen Pu-Abi was buried together with living servants. She had with her noblewomen, soldiers, servants and bodyguards. She was also buried with a fortune in gold vessels. Hoards of silver cups and pots were found. The amount of precious metal and costly gems was breathtaking.

Pu-Abi must have been a very important person and not just the wife of the king. She was about 40 years old when she died and was found on a wooden bed in a chamber. In her hand she held a cup of gold.

Around her neck she had long bead necklaces down to her waist, consisting of thousands of beads made of semi-precious stones and costly metal. The beads were made of lapis lazuli, corneal and gold. The needle holding her dress together was made of gold.

At her shoulder was found a seal with her name and title written in cuneiform script: "Pu-Abi, the Queen". The seal was made in the royal blue lapis lazuli. It pictured her at a festive dinner with her girlfriends. In the chamber her girlfriends were kneeling at her bed.

On her head she wore a wig and a gigantic head dress. From the thin gold ribbons twisted around her head, hung beech leaves of gold. Golden flowers stood up from a decorative headpiece at the back of her head. There were several such head dresses were on shelves in the grave.
