Assyrian Gallery: Khorsabad and Anatolia

Examples of red-burnished Hittite ceramics of the second millennium B.C. are exhibited in the center of this alcove. The wall-mounted cases hold examples of other decorated ware from ancient Turkey, primarily Phrygian materials (9th century B.C.) painted in brown and terra cotta on a buff background. A relief from the palace of Sargon II (721-705 B.C.) at Khorsabad (in modern Iraq), shows grooms leading horses that were given to the king as tribute.
