Summary
The Akkadian kings (ca. 2334-2154 bce) created the first territorial state in the ancient Near East and were remembered as model kings for more than two millennia thereafter. 'Exemplars of Kingship' evaluates how later rulers engaged with Akkadian visual models and memories of Akkadian kingship in their own images. Through analyses of post-Akkadian victory monuments, votive statues, cylinder seals, and other works of art, the text explores the intersection of visual traditions and cultural memory in ancient Mesopotamia. 'Exemplars of Kingship' also deconstructs the modern reception of Akkadian art to reveal its impact on our perception of ancient responses to Akkadian art and kingship
