A polychrome glazed brick from the Ishtar at Babylon, c570 BC. Artist: Werner Forman

A polychrome glazed brick from the Ishtar at Babylon, c570 BC. The Ishtar Gate was constructed during the time of Nebuchadnezzar II. It led into the city of Babylon via the Processional Way, along which statues of the Babylonian gods were paraded during New Year celebrations. The dog-like dragon, similar to those of Iranian mythology of about 2000 BC, is said to be the Murussu dragon, personal symbol of Marduk, the champion of the gods. From the State Museum, Berlin

Map of the World, probably from Sippar, southern Iraq, Babylonian, c700-c500 BC

Map of the World, probably from Sippar, southern Iraq, Babylonian, c700-c500 BC. This tablet contains both a cuneiform inscription and a unique map of the Mesopotamian world. Babylon is shown in the centre and Assyria, Elam and other places are also named. The central area is ringed by a circular waterway labelled Salt-Sea'. The outer rim of the sea is surrounded by what were probably originally eight regions, each indicated by a triangle, labelled Region or Island, and marked with the distance in between. The purpose of the map is to explain the Babylonian view of the mythological world. From the British Museum's collection
