Victory banquet


The victory banquet of Ashurbanipal, 669-631 BCE, in Nineveh.

Wine and grape leaves are featured in this Mesopotamian wall relief of a bedroom scene.

The king has brought me to his chambers.

Let us delight and rejoice in your love,

Savoring it more than wine –

Like new wine they love you!

Chapter 1:2-4
