The relief shows an Assyrian soldier leading a captured woman and a cow away, as part of the deportation of people. Only a small part of the woman's body has been preserved. Neo-Assyrian period, 7th century BCE. From the North palace of Ashurbanipal at Nineveh (modern Mosul, Ninawa Governorate), northern Mesopotamia, Iraq. (The Pergamon of Museum, Berlin).
