Some of our best evidence for Ubaid socioeconomic differentiation comes from the Hamrin region, where broad horizontal clearances at Tell Abada (fig. 7b), show that Building A, the largest house at the site, is four times the size of Building D, the smallest house (Jasim 1985: 202; Jasim 1989: fig. , stone mace-heads and palettes) made from rare, imported raw materials (Jasim 1985: 202). Furthermore, this difference continues for all three building phases, suggesting that these differences in wealth were passed along from one generation to the next.
Furthermore, this difference continues for all three building phases, suggesting that these differences in wealth were passed along from one generation to the next. Unfortunately, the only available data on households in the south derives from ‘Oueili and Eridu; these exposures are so limited that it is impossible to make the kinds of comparisons between houses that indicate in-site socioeconomic differences as at Abada in the Hamrin. The Hamrin differs from the southern Ubaid area in having not only a significantly different environmental setting (with concomitant implications for economic variation), but also through the apparent absence of temples, even at sites such as Tell Abada, where over 80 percent of the settlement has been exposed.
