The Cyrus Cylinder - now at the Asian Art Museum


It's good to be king: "I am Cyrus, king of the universe, the great king, the powerful king, king of Babylon, king of Sumer and Akkad, king of the four quarters of the world..."

The Cyrus Cylinder, travels here from the British Museum and is making its West Coast debut at the Asian Art Museum.
