This small alabaster bas relief was part of a larger relief that documented the military campaign of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal against the Elamite city of Hamanu. The Assyrian camp was built before Hamanu's city walls. There are two tents and various domestic animals that accompany the baggage train. In addition, an officer (returning home?) receives a drink from a servant. Neo-Assyrian period, 650 BCE. From the north palace of Ashurbanipal at Nineveh (modern Mosul, Ninawa Governorate), northern Mesopotamia, Iraq. (The Pergamon Museum, Berlin).
