The Assyrian King Tiglath-pileser III (reigned 744-727 BCE) wears a ceremonial robe and holding a bow, once facing 2 high officials (no longer preserved but recorded in a drawing). Behind him, stands a beardless attendant holding a spear bow, a fringed quiver, and a mace. The relief may originally have been in the Central Palace before being removed and re-used by king Esarhaddon reigned (689-680 BCE). Assyrian, about 728 BCE. From the South-West Palace at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), Mesopotamia, Iraq. (The British Museum, London).
