Further along the quay you see Iddin-Sin unloading goods from his boat. He looks up and is surprised to see you but gives you a friendly wave. You tell Iddin-Sin of your adventures and then help him with his textiles and jars of grain. He shouts across to some porters waiting by the citadel wall. Five men pick up the bundles of cloth and jars and follow you and Iddin-Sin through the bustling streets.

Passing along several narrow alleyways, Iddin-Sin stops in front of a low arched doorway. He pushes it open and invites you to step inside. You find yourself in a large courtyard. It is Iddin-Sin 's house. His wife and new baby are there to welcome him.

The next day after a rest he will show you the best places to buy carnelian, copper and pearls. Your father will be very pleased by how much you have learnt.
