Pu-abi


At one end of the pit was a tomb chamber made of blocks of stone. Inside were the remains of a wooden bier. The skeleton of a woman was laid out on the bier surrounded by objects.

Woolley thought that she was probably the owner of the tomb. She must have been an important person, perhaps a queen. She may have been called Pu-abi.
