Detail of a gypsum wall-relief showing the Assyrian King Tiglath Pileser III (recognizable by his long beard, royal head cap, and the exquisitely carved fringed robe). A charioteer stands on his left side while a royal attendant stands behind him (and holds a tasseled parasol, not shown here). The relief narrates the military campaign and capture of the city of Astartu, the Biblical Ashtaroth Karnaim in Gilead (Tell Ashtara). From the South-West palace at Nimrud, Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (The British Museum, London).
