2. Babylonian terracotta cuneiform fragment

Babylonian fragment

Babylonian terracotta cuneiform fragment from the reign of Nubuchadnezzar II – estimate £200-300 at Cotswold Auction Company on February 9.

The Cotswold Auction Company’s February 9 Books and Collectables auction in Cheltenham will include a single-owner collection of antiquities from Lionel Walrond.

He was born in 1927 to tenant farmers, but on leaving school he was not drawn to a farming life and became fascinated by history and archaeology. This interest led to the discovery of three Roman mosaics in south Somerset before his 18th birthday.

He collected local and historical artefacts, setting up his own museum in a converted Second World War army Nissan hut. Walrond moved to Stroud in 1955 to take up the post as curator at the Lansdown Museum, a post which he held for 37 years.

Included in the auction is this Babylonian terracotta cuneiform fragment from the reign of Nubuchadnezzar II which has an estimate of £200-300.
