Phoenician Bronze Bowl from Nimrud

Over 150 bronze bowls were found in a palace at the city of Nimrud. These bowls were made in Phoenicia (modern-day Lebanese and Syrian coasts), and were brought to Nimrud as tribute or booty by one of the kings who campaigned in the west, perhaps Tiglath-pileser III (reigned 744-727 BCE). Neo-Assyrian Period, 800-700 BCE. From the North-West Palace at Nimrud, Northern Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (British Museum, London)
