    A replica of a Babylonian plaque in the British Museum showing Shamash, the sun-god.

    The stone tablet shows Shamash, the sun- god, seated under an awning and holding the rod and ring, symbols of divine authority. The symbols of the Sun, Moon and Venus are above him with another large sun symbol supported by two divine attendants. On the left is the Babylonian king Nabu-apla-iddina between two interceding deities.

    This reproduction is produced in resin and has a hanging clip on the reverse for wall display, or may be propped on a mantlepiece.
