    Assyrian Royal Lion Hunt



    Assyrian Royal Lion Hunt - Ancient Egyptian Lion hunts were usually reserved for those in power. These hunts nearly resulted in the extermination of regional Lion populations by 1100 BC. Commemorative artwork has been found telling of how during a single hunt, pharaoh Amenhotep III killed more than 100 lions.


    Assyrian Royal Lion Hunt, from the North Palace of Nineveh (room C, panel 25-28), 645635 BC - now in the British Museum.
