Very interesting.

This would be Babylonian then I suppose? Like the Cyrus Cylinder.

Very interesting indeed.

Description

The Nabonidus cylinder from Ur is particularly noteworthy because it mentions a son named Belshezzar,[1] who is mentioned in the Book of Daniel.

The cylinder states:

"As for me, Nabonidus, king of Babylon, save me from sinning against your great godhead and grant me as a present a life long of days, and as for Belshazzar, the eldest son -my offspring- instill reverence for your great godhead in his heart and may he not commit any cultic mistake, may he be sated with a life of plenitude."
