PBS XIV: The worshiping of Shamash as above and of Martu. Shamash has his hair tied in a swallow tail and his leg resting on a square base. Martu steps forth with his club and scimitar in one hand. The emblems between are the crescent, the sun disk with cross and rays and the fly. The usual divine attendant adores with both hands up. There is a small nude Gilgamesh i front face, with a belt, his hands clasped, and his phallus strongly marked, which is unusual.
