  • Description

    Gypsum wall panel relief: shows a city captured, its inhabitants and animals being driven away. The city is surrounded by a double wall fortified with turrets and battlements. The walls are crenellated but have no openings. Three square gateways with double doors lead into the city, within which a date-palm grows. This indicates that this scene is laid in Babylonia. On a low platform in front of the walls, apparently made by the Assyrians for the attack, stand two battering rams (of that to the left only traces visible). They are not in action because the city is already taken. A scribe writes to an officer's dictation as women and children are driving away in bullock-carts with eight-spoked wheels. The cart nearest to the city is heavily loaded and on top of it sit two women, their feet resting on the backs of the bullocks, and a little boy. The first woman has long hair hanging down to her neck and holds a bottle with both hands. The woman behind her holds a staff in her right hand, and her veil hangs down over her shoulders. The boy seems to wear a cap (or coiffure?) with a sort of tuft. The second cart is lower, but longer. It seems to carry a mother with her son and daughter. The boy is somewhat older than that in the first cart but wears a similar cap(?). The girl holds a water-skin in her left hand. Both women wear a cloth or garment which covers their heads. In front of the carts is a herd of cattle, beyond them a date-palm. This is only the left part of a group. The full group shows the deportation during Tiglath-Pileser III's campaigns in Southern Iraq.

    In set with 1848,1104.5 (BM.118882)Layard, after having drawn slabs 1848,1105.5 and 1849,0502.6 (BM. 118882) , realised that the two reliefs formed one scene and provided a short description of it in ‘Nineveh and its Remains’, vol. II, pp.22-3.
    An original drawing of this relief is in the British Museum's 'Original Drawings of Assyrian Sculptures' collection: Or.Dr.III, 'Central XVII: "Cart with woman - castle with two battering rams"', and is published in Barnett & Falkner (1962), 'The Sculptures of Tiglath-Pileser III (745-727 B.C.)', pl. III.The cast is listed as available in the British Museum Facsimile Service 'Catalogue of Replicas from British Museum collections' (n.d.), in the series "Assyrian Bas-Reliefs".
