The important group of Assyrian sculptures, lent to the Museum by Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., has been moved to Pepper Hall, on the second floor of the Museum, where it forms an impressive introduction to the Babylonian collections. Belonging to the same series as those in the British Museum, discovered by Layard in 1845, the sculptures represent a unique group in this country, and one of the outstanding collections now on view in the Museum.
