This scene is part of a large alabaster bas-relief which shows a tributary procession from Western Assyria (probably in modern-day Syria or Turkey). Here, we can see a groom leading two horses. From Khorsabad (ancient Dur-Sharrukin), in modern-day Iraq. Neo-Assyrian period, 710-705 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
