Gypsum wall panel relief: in the upper register, a line of Assyrian warriors moves ⇦. On the right, an Assyrian soldier wearing a mail-shirt over the tunic decorated with the fringed border hanging down between his knees, and, as it seems, a helmet, pulls at the branches of a low tree. In front of it are six warriors, three slingers and before them, a man with round shield and dagger, all similarly dressed, except that the tunic of the shield-bearer is richly ornamented with concentric squares. He follows a pair of warriors; the first, wearing a garment decorated with fringes and small discs put into squares, is an archer; the man partly hidden by him and wearing an ornamented tunic holds a dagger in his right hand.
Dating to 728 BC, found in Tiglath-pileser III’s Palace at Nimrud.
