This rock relief dates back to the Akkadian era. It lies on the cliff of Mt. Darbadi Bilula, Hori and Shekhan area, Sulaimaniya, near the Iranian border, Iraq. Circa 2100 BCE. It features a victorious man with two captives before him; one is kneeling and the other one is beneath his foot. On the right, there are Akkadian cuneiform inscriptions in 4 columns.
