Bronze Wall-Nail from Urartu

Known as siqqatu (in Akkadian), such nails are found in temples and palaces throughout the Middle East in this period. They were embedded in the walls of rooms and may have been used for wall-hangings. From Toprakkale, Eastern Anatolia, in modern-day Turkey. Urartian, late 8th century BCE. (The British Museum, London).
