This is part of a series of reliefs showing Arab prisoners brought before the Assyrian King Tiglath-pileser III (reigned 744-727 BCE). The hands of two women prisoners are visible on the extreme right. The prisoners are led by an Assyrian official. The King would have been shown in a panel on the left. Assyrian, about 728 BCE. From the Central Palace at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), Mesopotamia, Iraq. (The British Museum. London).
