Only this fragment of a large stele has survived. On the surface, the Assyrian and Babylonian kings were carved in relief. The cuneiform inscription narrates a political treaty between them. The faces of the kings were deliberately vandalized. Neo-Assyrian period, 911-612 BCE. From A'na (Anat) District, al-Anbar Governorate, Iraq. On display at the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, Republic of Iraq.
