Votive Plaque Dedicating a Property to Nabu's Temple

This bronze plaque was made in the form of an amulet and was inscribed with cuneiform inscriptions. The figures of four deities were incised above the inscriptions. Marduk holds on a necklace and stands on a dragon while Nabu holds a stylus. Neo-Assyrian Period, 800-700 BCE. Probably from the Temple of Nabu at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (The British Museum, London)
