There is a House of Pearls named after the many white pearls and shells that were found there; these probably came from the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean islands. Craftsmen and merchants took refuge there in times of war, abandoning their houses outside the walls. It is best known for a gold bowl with relief decoration of weather gods and scenes from the mythology of the Hurri unearthed during the summer of 1958. This had been looted about 800 BC by soldiers from Urartu ( a kingdom adjoining Lake Van, to the east) who, however, were killed by the collapse of a burning roof before they could escape. The bowl is related artistically to the finds from Marlik and Ziwieh.
