Assyrian Gallery: Anatolia

The large cast on the wall comes from a scene in the Hittite shrine of Yazilikaya, showing king Tudhaliya (mid-13th century B.C.). Under the windows is a large block of basalt, carved in Luwian, the Hittite hieroglyphic script. A relief from the palace of Sargon II of Assyria (721-705 B.C.) is mounted on the wall to the left. Across the central corridor one can see a collection of ceramics from ancient Turkey.
