Part of the Processional Way at Babylon

This is part of the processional way (or street) at the ancient city of Babylon, in modern-day Iraq. The reliefs of aurochs (bulls) and mušḫuššus (dragons) are originals, as are the flanking walls. Neo-Babylonian period, reign of Nebuchadnezzar II, 6th century BCE.
