The tomb of the princess (shown here, compare with next two photos), so called because it contained the richly adorned skeleton of a l2-year-old girl, lay beneath a court of Ebla’s Western Palace. Nine pieces of fine gold jewelry, about 70 ceramic vessels (many of which lie as discovered in the photo) and two stone vessels (all dated 1825–1750 B.C.) accompanied the girl.
