Akkadian Soldier on Naram-Sin Victory Stele from Wasit

This alabaster stele (with different registers) was fragmented when originally found and only three fragments have survived; two are in the Iraq Museum in Baghdad and one is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, USA. The stele commemorates one of Naram-Sin’s military victories in modern-day Anatolia, Turkey.

This fragment depicts a procession of Akkadian soldiers wearing a ribbed or quilted helmet, a fringed sash, and a long skirt. The warrior in this register has a long sword hanging by his side; he holds what appears to be a belt and a short sword or a dagger attached to it. The left hand holds a two-handed vessel (depas).

From al-Hay district, in modern-day Wasit Governorate, Iraq. Akkadian period, reign of Naram-Sin of Akkad, 2254 - 2218 BCE. On display at the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, Republic of Iraq. The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago's "Lost Treasures of Iraq" website says it was excavated at Nasiriyah (in modern-day Dhi Qar Governorate) and gives it "unknown status" after the ransacking of the Iraq Museum in April 2003.
