From Nineveh and Babylon By A. H. Layard

Another of the Reverend Caesar Solomon Malan’s sketches, also from Nineveh, shows the interior of a cavernous tunnel that recedes into the background at right. Through one of the holes in the roof, three man are hoisting a basket of excavated material. To their left, a colossal, broken slab displays the lower half of Dagon, the Assyrian fish god, who was depicted as part fish and part human.
