The cuneiform inscription on this hexagonal clay prism narrates the military campaigns of the Assyrian king Esarhaddon (reigned 680-669 BCE). Later on, the upper aspect was used a candle-holder by the owner. Neo-Assyrian Period, 7th century BCE. Probably from Nineveh, Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (The British Museum, London)
