Notes

Alan Cole
Fragment of a stele of Nebuchadnezzar II from Nahr Al Kelb Dog River, Lebanon, celebrating his victory there. c. 590 BC.
Taken as a souvenir by a British soldier during WWII.
I did take a tracing of this fragment to the actual stele and found the area from which the fragment was taken.
