Mesopotamian terracotta foundation cone with inscriptions, 2000. B.C.

The foundational cones were terracotta supports in which cuneiform inscriptions were made gathering the exploits of the kings, their conquests and constructions. The most usual typology in which these themes were collected was in tablets or in cones. These cones were used in an architectural way, although merely decorative, introducing them in the facades of homes or large buildings.
