Description of Bull Headed Lyre of Ur

The Bull Headed Lyre of Ur is among the earliest stringed instruments ever to have been found. At a variety of events, including formal banquets, symposia (private drinking gatherings), religious ceremonies, funerals, and musical competitions like those held at the renowned Panathanaia, Pythia, and Karneia festivals, the lyre was played either by itself or as an accompaniment to singing or lyric poetry. The lyre was discovered during the 1926–1927 season of an archaeological dig conducted by the British Museum and the University of Pennsylvania in what is now Iraq. The dig took place in the Royal Cemetery of Ur and was overseen by Leonard Woolley.
