As they did with the Altar of Zeus, archaeologists dismantled and sent to Germany this truly astounding find from the dig at Babylon in present-day Iraq. These fired-brick figures adorned the processional way to the great Gate of Ishtar, the ceremonial entrance to Babylon. If only those bricks could talk. They could describe Nebuchadnezzar II to us.
