Context Temple of Sin
Locale Description This complex was dedicated to Sin, the Mesopotamian Moon God. Even after Ur ceased to be an important strategic center, in later Mesopotamian history, Ur continued to be recognized as an important cult center for Sin. Nabonidus, a 6th century BCE Neo-Babylonian King, appointed his daughter as high priestess of Sin at the ancient cult centre of Ur.
