Terracotta Plaque Dedicated to Gula

This fragment was part of a large terracotta plaque which depicts a bull in front of a tree. The cuneiform inscriptions on the bull's thigh mention that the plaque was dedicated by a man named Sin-Eriba to Gula, goddess of healing. From Mesopotamia, Iraq. 1100-900 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
