One More example of Oriental influence on the Protocorinthians

The following image is the best example I could find of a frieze (in this case Achaemenid) showing its influence on Protocorinthian pottery. I intended it to be part of the previous post on that subject, but didn’t have permission to use it in time.

Thanks to Karin Welss for letting me use the image and Charles Jones for pointing out my mistake on its origin.

One problem with using this object in your argument is that it isn't Assyrian. It's Achaemenid, dating to to late sixth century. Excavated at Persepolis in the 1930s, now on display in the Oriental Institute Museum's Persian gallery.
