Victory Stele of Naram-Sin, Akkadian, pink limestone, 2254-2218 B.C.E. (Louvre, Paris)

This monument depicts the Akkadian victory over the Lullubi Mountain people. In the12th century B.C.E., 1,000 years after it was originally made, the Elamite king, Shutruk-
Nahhunte, attacked Babylon and, according to his later inscription, the stele was taken to Susa in what is now Iran.

A stele is a vertical stone monument or marker often inscribed with text or relief carving.

Speakers: Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker
