[Ancientartifacts] Re: Cuneiform tablets and cylinder seals

Although it does not give an answer to your questions, the following
publication of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago
OIMP 28."Catastrophe! The Looting and Destruction of Iraq's Past"
Edited by Geoff Emberling and Katharyn Hanson, 2008, is a good
reference to the topic.

I uploaded the publication to the files section.

Best regards,
