Shoshenq IV[edit]

Hello there, I'll try to explain what I meant with the Shoshenq IV / Shoshenq V issue.

The existence of the current Shoshenq IV was proposed in the 1980s and confirmed in 1993. Before that date, the current Shoshenq V was usually called "Shoshenq IV", then the nomenclature has simply slipped forward by one unit.
This particular stela is mentioned in Kenneth Kitchen's Third Intermediate Period in Egypt. I quote from § 310: "Further south from Memphis, at Atfih, the local priest of Hathor [i.e. Ankh-hor] dedicated a stela in Year 22 of Shoshenq V". The same stela appears in a 1920 paper by his discoverer, Thomas Eric Peet.
A final hint is given by the stela itself: a reading of the hierogliphic inscription reveals that it is dated to regnal year 22 of king Aakheperre Shoshenq (see the cartouches). The only one recognized king Aakheperre Shoshenq is the current Shoshenq V who ruled 38 years; the current Shoshenq IV is called Hedjkheperre Shoshenq and ruled well less than 22 years.

Ultimately, my guess is that the caption provided by the Petrie Museum was never changed since before 1993, and still bears the old nomenclature! I hope that I clarified exhaustively. Khruner (talk) 18:53, 12 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Categories[edit]

Your photos are very good, but your adding of categories is frankly appalling. Almost no photo actually needs more than about 3 categories. Please don't ever add categories that are just the name of a country - there will always be a subcategory that is appropriate. If you look at your files you will see that all of them are causing other editors a lot of work putting them in more appropriate categories. Also please avoid the "currently housed in" cliche - British Museum etc objects are not going anywhere. Your adding of your photos to Wikipedia articles is also sometimes inappropriate, placing them too high, adding too many etc. The Amarna art article was especially bad. Best, Johnbod (talk) 18:44, 29 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

- Your message is sound and clear. The categories should be kept to minimum, the type of category should be very specific to the uploaded image, and the caption should be of a certain type of narration. Any contribution, help, or assistance, especially if voluntary, should be appreciated. A polite productive advice from an expert to say a non-expert contributor is fruitful. Because my prior contributions were frankly appalling, adding confusing cliche, and disruptive to the articles as well as being very bad, it will be much better if I stop contributing, and I will. Warmest regards. Neuroforever (talk)

Hi! Thank you for the note. Please, correct it if you are able to do it. The Iraq Museum's descriptions are not only defective but many times, many artifacts are completely devoid of any description. This tablet was within a case displaying Eannatum inscriptions. I always search the net and publications before uploading an image of an artifact in the Iraq Museum, but the failure rate is high. And, I uploaded today a tablet; the description says of Ur-Nammu (a foundation stone tablet placed immediately adjacent to a bronze foundation figurine of the same king), but I compared it with other inscriptions.

File:Assyrian stele from Anat, al-Anbar, Iraq. A treaty between Assyrian and Babylonian kings. Iraq Museum.jpg[edit]

Hello. Do you have more information on the stele on this picture ? File:Assyrian stele from Anat, al-Anbar, Iraq. A treaty between Assyrian and Babylonian kings. Iraq Museum.jpg I have never heard of it and it appears nowhere in the editions of assyrian treaties I know (first of all SAA 2), nor in more recent books, and it seems to be a very interesting object with a nice inscription I'd like to get a translation of. Thanks by advance if you have any information about it. Regards, Zunkir (talk) 19:12, 18 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi! True, you will never find it...I couldn't find any pertinent publication. Perhaps, someone from the Iraq Museum can answer this question. Thank you. Regards.Neuroforever (talk) 20:47, 18 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your fast answer. According to my research, the best candidate would be a stele of Ninurta-kudurri-usur of Suhu and Mari found in 'Anah in 1981-82, cf. the description in Iraq vol. 45 no 2 p. 204 : "One relief shows Ninurta-kudurri-usur with his hand raised in a gesture of worship in front of a deity of which only the staff is preserved. This scene is shown below what is probably a register with the symbols of the gods and is accompanied by a long and partly illegible inscription of Ninurta-kudurri-usur". The translation can be found in RIMB 2 p. 317-318, it is about the restauration of a statue and cult of the goddess Anat, that's why I'm puzzled, but by reading the signs it could be it (I'll try with my cuneiform manual later, I'm not good with this kind of archaizing signs), and it is said that the end cannot be read so it looks like this stele. Unfortunately I cannot find the original publication by Cavigneaux and Ismail in Baghdader Mitteilungen 21 (1990), where a picture of the said stele can be found. I'll let you know if I find an answer. Regards, Zunkir (talk) 10:01, 19 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's most likely to be this stele. You can find the translation here: http://oracc.org/suhu/Q006220/ Zunkir (talk) 15:27, 19 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Glad to help, it's thanks to the quality of the picture that I could read some signs. The history of this kingdom of Suhu is not well known so it's not surprising that these steles were not easy to identify. This one File:Assyrian wall relief showing a scribe and a horseman trampling enemies. From Anah, Iraq. Iraq Museum.jpg is also mentioned in Iraq vol. 45 no 2 : " Another particularly interesting relief shows two horsemen riding over the bodies of defeated enemies while at the edge of the block, rather larger than the other figures, is depicted a scribe writing on a clay tablet with a stylus shaped like the cuneiform sign for I." As for this one File:Assyrian stele from Anah, al-Anbar, Iraq. Iraq Museum.jpg not a clue, it's obviously from the same period but it also reminds me of kudurru reliefs. About the excavations the article indicates "Throughout I98I and I982 the Iraqi State Organization for Antiquities and Heritage carried out excavations on 'Ana Island directed by Sd. Mahir Mohammed Jalal", and the objects were found at the center of the island. Regards, Zunkir (talk) 21:00, 19 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

May I point you to https://pbase.com/dosseman/image/92394694 where you can see I had a picture of the same tablet (at the time unidentified) available to the world in 2008? (The exif had 2006, I often forgot to change the date at the time. But I can see "1682 page views since 01-FEB-08" so I suppose that is when I published it. It's in color.

Sargon image (and another image)[edit]

Hello. You reverted my edits to the licenses on this image of Sargon II. I edited the commons page for the image as part of my attempt at getting the article on Sennacherib on Wikipedia to featured article status and I was told during the review to do this. The reason for creating two licenses is to clearly illustrate that the Sargon relief itself is in the public domain on accoutn of its age - nowhere did I claim that the image itself was PD (since your original license was also retained). This is done because the image was taken at the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, Iraq and freedom of panorama does not exist in Iraq. I don't see the issue here.

I was also asked to do the same change to this image of Adad-nirari III, since it crops up in Sennacherib's article, but I will hold off any further edits until you've responded. Ichthyovenator (talk) 09:57, 29 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. Thank you for your edits. I'm aware of and understand what image licenses reflect and do. Many people do not know what is CC and the presence of a public domain word on my images (or others) may encourage many individuals to use this or that image without any attribution in the virtual world of social media or somewhere else. This happened 1000s of times with me. They block you when you tell them to credit the work and when I reported a DMCA notice (and the image is removed after then), I received a very hostile response and some of them were crystal-clear threatening to k i l l. I'm not (and have not ever) using (used) an anonymous account; a well-known international figure, I have nothing to hide or to fear from/of. People can easily recognize and target me. I believe they will not target or threaten you (an anonymous one). You had edited and re-edited my image of Sargon II in the Iraq Museum without an explanation; this is not a personal conflict. You have and had to say why? Anyway, these edits will open a new door of hell to me. A complicated subject, you see now why I had reverted your edits. All the very best.

@Ichthyovenator: Hi Osama, I'm pigging Ichthyovenator so that he can see your response. Personnally, I would not push for the primary-object PD tag, as it only states the obvious and is not absolutely necessary (and generally not used), and could indeed be misunderstood, or mis-construed by malevolent re-users. Osama, I understand that your photographs are of great quality, and you do not want any ambiguity about their licensing. However, I guess Ichthyovenator has the right on his side, so it would be best if he voluntarily removed the tag, given your issues with it. Here, the object is simply out of copyright due to its old age: being 4,000 years old, it is public domain in all countries of the world. It is so obvious that usually it does not require the usage of a specific PD tag, although I agree that this is sometimes (quite rarely) done, and in this case pre-emptively deals with what would be a very hypothetical, and in any case ill-founded, objection on the basis of Absence of Freedom of panorama. I would recommend the removal of the tag, given the issues of the creator with it. पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 16:02, 23 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you @पाटलिपुत्र and पाटलिपुत्र: for your reply. I'm sure you have already seen that I have contributed a lot with high-quality images of ancient artifacts, here on Wikicommons and ancient.eu. I'm not looking for any financial benefit obviously; it's just volunteerism and trying to spread our heritage. But, regrettably saying, many people misuse or abuse these images without any attribution (especially Iraqi FB and Tw groups pretending to protect the Mesopotamian legacy; they already don't know what CC is and become very hostile when you say this image is mine). I would be grateful if anyone here on WikiCommons tags my images with this PD thing; I have 1000s of images; super-selecting one image specifically for this purpose is strange. I know Iraq has no FOP.Thank you once again. Regards. Neuroforever (talk) 10:13, 24 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@पाटलिपुत्र: @Neuroforever: To make my own stance here perfectly clear: I'm not very knowledgeable about image licenses and don't really care what is under the image. I did what I was told to do at the Featured Article Candidate review for the article on Sennacherib, I feel like the FAC image reviewers know what they are doing. I definitely sympathize with your situation - the images should not be used without attribution and I am shocked to hear that you have received death threats over attempting to enforce your legitimate rights to these images. Having these high quality images on Wikipedia is an incredible resource, as an active editor of articles on ancient Assyria and Babylonia I can assure you that ancient Mesopotamia coverage on Wikipedia would not be the same without your contributions.
I agree that it is fairly obvious that the artefacts are in the public domain so a seperate tag for that should not really be needed, but I am not knowledgeable enough to argue over image policy and license tags - I did what I was told to do to make the article eligible for Featured Article status. These tags were recommended by Nikkimaria, you can see the discussion at the bottom of the FA review page here. Ichthyovenator (talk) 20:45, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ichthyovenator: Thank you for your comment. I think the problem might be with the PD tag itself, which is unecessarily showy, and is actually much more visible than the CC tag, whereas its only role is to describe the rationale behind the legitimacy of the Creative Commons license. To solve this particular issue, I propose, in replacement of the tag, to simply add a plain sentence in the "Description" box, such as: "The sculpture in the photograph was made in 3000 BC, and is therefore free of author rights. But this photograph of the sculpture is a modern creative work, and is fully copyrighted under the Creative Commons License below". Thus we can explain the rationale without using the showy PD tag. @Neuroforever: , would this be an acceptable solution for you? पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 21:23, 25 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ichthyovenator: @पाटलिपुत्र and पाटलिपुत्र: Thanks, both of you. That would be great. All the very best. Regards. Neuroforever (talk) 10:34, 26 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kings hunting lions in Berlin and London[edit]

I sometimes have trouble in correctly naming pictures I took in museums. For that reason I generally take a picture of relevant notices. But there are cases where I overlooked or simply forgot it. Over some 17 years I have found that using the web I often can come to a satisfying identification. Recently I took a few pictures – amongst hundreds – of the lion hunt from Assyrian times in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum. The notice identified it, I will put the notice in commons. But then things became complicated. I noticed lots of pictures in the category “Lion hunt of Ashurnasirpal II” that claimed to be of a lion hunt in the British Museum. I do not know who put them there. I then found there was such a hunt, but by a king Ashurbanipal, in the British Museum indeed. But not of a Ashurbanipal II, the name used in the names of the pictures. I checked with the notice someone put in the British category that seemed to be from the museum itself. I located many fine pictures on the website of the BC itself, using https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/search?keyword=Ashurbanipal&keyword=Lion&keyword=hunt&view=grid&sort=object_name__asc&page=1 . None of them mention a Ashurbanipal II. Using Google I found some pictures of that king, but they were yours. I found a Dutch site claiming such a king existed, but as he supposedly was born in the same year as the king I found all over the web as Ashurbanipal and as I found zilch other mentions of Ashurbanipal II I wonder if maybe you created him. You might have mixed up Ashurbanipal with Ashurnasirpal II. I often do not hesitate to ask for a file to be renamed as an obvious error if I’m certain of it, but here I wonder what went on. Did you mix two kings, two centuries apart, up? If my hypothesis is correct, I’d appreciate it if you’d have the files renamed. If I'm wrong, could you inform me? In the mean time I’ll move the British pictures from the Berlin category, where they obviously don’t belong. I think the matter is rather important, as I repeatedly find wrong texts in the Wikipedia or Commons take on a life of their own, indeed king Ashurbanipal II pictures are now in Twitter too, and probably all over the web.Dosseman (talk) 19:13, 11 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In short, there are lion-hunt reliefs of "Ashurbanipal II" (7th century BCE) at the Brtish Museum and Pergamon Museum. In addition, there are lion-hunt reliefs belonging to "Ashurnasirpal II" (9th century BCE, but much fewer in number) at these Museums. I think you have been mixing up things in the wrong way making confusion. Some people may tag or add incorrect categories; this does not mean that the image is not correct. Many social media accounts fake up or confabulate descriptions for some reason or another. Can you mention some URLs of my images on Wikimedia Commons (as you have stated) which do you think are consistent with your statement above? Neuroforever (talk) 19:40, 11 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As requested here is a link to one of your pictures: Detail, Ashurbanipal II's guards with their spears and shields, amid lion-hunts. From Room C, North Palace at Nineveh, Iraq, 645-635 BCE. British Museum, London. I originally found the picture in the category Lion hunt of Ashurnasirpal II, but it and about 60 others now is in the category Lion Hunt of Ashurbanipal, as I moved it, them being from the British Museum, claiming to be pictures of a hunt by a king Ashurbanipal II. I confess I should have created a category to show king Ashurbanipal II's pictures and put them there as the set they are, but that would have been contrary to what I think is the case. I have mailed to the British Museum, asking them to explain if such a king existed or, as I believe, only king Ashurbanipal existed. An answer may take weeks to arrive, in the mean time I will try to understand how I caused confusion by my actions.Dosseman (talk) 13:10, 12 October
Wonderful work you have done. I think the automatic filling in of the categories was the culprit. The names superficially look alike. Yes, they are of Ashurbanipal II at the British Museum, came from Nineveh, Iraq, and date back to the 7th century BCE. Thank you. Neuroforever (talk) 10:51, 18 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My wonderful work has not finished, but was on hold. My suggestion, that there never was a king named Ashurbanipal II, still stood. As I wrote, I mailed to the British Museum, but they never answered. A history professor from Peking University I was in touch with for other matters checked some kings’ names list, and could not find a Ashurbanipal II. But he had to confess that he was not a specialist for the region. So I contacted the Rijksmuseum voor Oudheden (National Museum of Antiquities) in Leiden, The Netherlands. From its Curator Ancient Near East (Dr David Kertai, Conservator Nabije Oosten) I yesterday received an answer. It confirmed my suspicion. I asked him to write the quintessence of his response in English, so here is his verdict: “The lion hunt relief at the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin was found in the palace of Ashurnasirpal II and belongs to his reign. Although the Assyrians did not number their kings, only one Ashurbanipal ever ruled Assyria.“ Unless you wish to disagree with a curator of as major museum I now ask you to see that your statement “In short, there are lion-hunt reliefs of "Ashurbanipal II" (7th century BCE) at the Brtish Museum and Pergamon Museum. In addition, there are lion-hunt reliefs belonging to "Ashurnasirpal II" (9th century BCE, but much fewer in number) at these Museums. I think you have been mixing up things in the wrong way making confusion” is contrary to specialists’ verdict. It would be nice if you took the II from the pictures' names. As I stated by using Google “I found zilch other mentions of Ashurbanipal II I wonder if maybe you created him.” It think it’s time you erase him from history. Adding, on Christmas Day, so a week later: as you did not react in any way I took it upon me to request file movers to have all the II's stricken out. I now found one of them did so, I hope this will put Ashurbanipal II to rest. All this has cost me hours upon hours of work, life would have been simpler if you'd accepted my claim when I first made it. Dosseman (talk) 16:01, 16 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
