Stele Fragment

Roughly square-shaped stele fragment is about 60 cm on each side. In the foreground, it shows a male figure with a bow on his right shoulder and a sword on his belt. Although not clearly visible, he is probably on the back of a horse and holding the reins with his left hand. In the background is a seated woman and on the upper right corner is a servant with a palm leaf. Apparently shortly before 1910, the stele fragmententered into the possession of the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin, where it is currently on display.
