This rock-relief lies on one of the tops of Mt. Pira Magroon, Sulaimaniya, Iraq. It is 1716 meters above sea level. In 2009, an expedition was carried out by a Western team to find out who is the man featured in this relief and who lived in this area. The relief contains no single word or letter. Unfortunately, after 56 days in the area, the team failed to find any clue or any other item which may give a hint to whom was there. The only conclusion was that this relief dates back to the Kassite era (1531-1155 BCE), according to the man’s clothes.
