This unusual scene (in black stone) came from a detached building on the private side of the palace, possibly reserved for royal use. It was one of the few discoveries made at Khorsabad by Henry Layard. Neo-Assyrian Period, reign of Sargon II, 710-705 BCE. From Khorsabad (Dur-Sharrukin), Northern Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (British Museum, London)
