ASSYRIA
 
The following pictures are from Layard's book Babylon and Ninevah, Second Expedition. Since the copyright (1853) has expired on this important work and we have a copy in very good condition, we are trying to preserve the images electronically. If possible we will include the page on which the "engraving" is found and Layard's caption.
