Reade, (“Sargon’s Campaigns of 720, 716, and 715 B.C.: Evidence from the Sculptures,” Journal of Near Eastern Studies 35 [1976], p. 100), who writes, “The heads of the enemies in battle (K), at least one of those in siege (J), and possibly those in Gabbutunu, are negroid; both Botta and Flandin were positive about this, though Layard saw the slabs later and tentatively questioned their conclusion; we must accept the original excavators’ opinion, and therefore identify these enemies as Egyptians or Nubians.”
