A votive plaque of white marble. The lower part shows two men carrying a large jar and another man in front of them seems to steer an animal from behind, perhaps a cow or horse. At the upper part there are two men sitting in front of each other holding two glasses and drinking something in "a cheers action". Early dynastic period, 2900-2300 BCE, Mesopotamia, Sulaimaniya Museum, Iraq.
