This wall panel, one of a series, shows two disconnected scenes. Above is part of a battle. Below, the royal chariot waits behind Tiglath-pileser III, who was shown on a panel to the right. The writing in the middle deals with the Assyrian military campaigns in modern-day Syria and Iran in 738-737 BCE. Assyrian, reign of Tiglath-pileser III, about 728 BCE. From the Central Palace at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), Mesopotamia, Iraq; re-used later in the South-West Palace. (The British Museum, London).
