Historians had racked their brains over Greek inscriptions found at the ancient Sumerian temple of Girsu, which sits in the present-day town of Tello.
At 4,000 years old, it is ancient and came far before the time of the Ancient Greeks, erected around the same time that Stonehenge was coming together in Britain.
Archaeologists from the British Museum have now decoded some of the inscriptions and believe a Greek temple to Alexander the Great was founded on the site.
