Only this part of a limestone stele has survived. This fragment depicts a woman, in relief, looking to the left and wearing a headdress of the royal women. Her identity is unknown. Female depiction (queens and princesses) in neo-Assyrian art is scarce. From Kli'eh, near Haditha Dam, Al-Anbar Governorate, Iraq. Neo-Assyrian period, 911-612 BCE. On display at the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, Republic of Iraq.
