Fragment of Victory Stele
 of a King of Akkad

Sb 3

Richelieu room 2

Akkad is identified as the ancient city
of Agade, the precise location
of which is unknown.

It was one of the four cities founded
by Nimrod formed “the beginning of his kingdom” - Genesis 10:10.

The naked captives are a good illustration
of Isaiah 20:1-4, even though it does
not refer to the same king.
