An inscription on a handled bucket made of silver records that Esarhaddon dedicated it to the god Adad at Guzana, modern Tell Halaf, which is located in the Upper Khabur region in north Syria, near the modern border with Turkey. The bucket was found in the summer of 1992 by the Iranian Department of Antiquities in a hoard of ancient silver vessels discovered in a cave in the Luristan area.

A banded-agate eyestone, now in a private collection, was dedicated to the god Marduk. The eyestone was purchased from an antiquities dealer in Kabul, Afghanistan, around 1976. The inscription runs around the rim of the pupil, which appears to have been artificially stained. The current whereabouts of the eyestone are unknown.
