The Dr. Norman Solhkhah Family Assyrian Empire Gallery features reliefs from the interior of the palace of king Sargon II at Khorsabad, including scenes of the king hunting by chariot, feasting, and the presentation of tribute. A highlight of the gallery is the Sennacherib Prism, a perfectly preserved record in cuneiform script of the reign of King Sennacherib of Assyria, including his sack of Jerusalem, and a relief of Assyrian soldiers excavated at Tell Tayinat.
