Glad to hear about the project on trade in glass beads. I hope it will include mention of some of the world's earliest glass beads, used in decorating Ishtar Temple A at the site of Nuzi, in northern Iraq, dating to about 1400 BC. Numerous other glass and glazed terracotta artifacts were also found there. For references, see my article, "How to Bury a Temple," in vol. 10 of the series, Studies on the Civilization and Culture of Nuzi and the Hurrians, entitled Nuzi at Seventy-Five, and edited by David I. Owen and Gernot Wilhelm (CDL Press; 1999) pp. 103-122.
