Iran gifted a replica of the sixth century BC antique clay cylinder on which is written a declaration in Akkadian cuneiform in the name of the Persian king Cyrus II the Great. Iran donated this replica of the Cyrus Cylinder to the Hague Academy of International Law. More replicas of the original Cyrus Cylinder have been made and can be found in the UN building in New York, among other places.
