2002-9-21mKB bearded figure of Shamash wearing a horned crown facing right, the one preserved arm held at waist level, the end of a diagonal element as if a staff below the hand, bearded deity with horned crown seated facing left holding an unclear object? stool decorated with square patterns and continues under the feet of the god as an attached foot rest, faint rays above his right shoulder (identifying the deity as Shamash), vertical single case inscription box, smaller figure facing right wearing a cap with striations (or can be interpreted as hair). [Input file: M921MKB.J / M921MKB.-J]
