In this clay tablet, Shamash-shum-ukin confirms a grant which was previously made by Ashur-nadin-shumi. The royal seal on this clay tablet is not an original impression, but a man-modelled copy. It depicts the Babylonia king fighting a oryx antelope. From Babylonia (modern-day Babel Governorate, Iraq), Mesopotamia. 670-650 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
