The extraordinary side-spouted gold jug hereby presented and discussed was found in the Royal Tomb III discovered under room 57 in the North-West Palace at Nimrud. The gold jug was, with other astonishing grave goods probably belonging to Hamâ (an Assyrian queen unknown up to recent times), in bronze Coffin 2, one of the three coffins placed in the antechamber. The aim of this study is not only to shed light on this unique vessel, investigating the method of manufacture, decoration, and functional aspect, but also to identify the possible workshop and date range of production. The comparison with coeval archaeological findings places it within a historical framework of artistic, economic and socio-political interactions. The combined results of these analyses suggest that the golden jug, instead of a gift or tribute, may have been produced for the royal court in the Neo-Assyrian international cultural milieu, into which manifold traditions coexisted.
