Description The depicted scene includes a lion and a griffin, both on hind legs, attacking a horned quadruped. The horned quadruped's body faces the lion, but its head is turned to face the griffin. Behind the griffin is another figure, the top of which is difficult to read but the legs on which it stands are that of a bull (bull-man?). A cuneiform inscription in two registers borders the scene.
