This alabaster bas-relief shows a head of a bearded man. The fragment was part of a larger relief which depicts a procession of tribute bearers. The man's turban and his hair style and beard suggest that the man came from the western part of the Assyrian empire, probably from modern-day Syrian coast or Turkey. From the palace of king Sargon II at Dur-Sharrukin (modern-day Khorsabad, Ninawa Governorate, Iraq), northern Mesopotamia. Neo-Assyrian period, 710-705 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
