Fragment of a Neo-Assyrian clay tablet: containing physiognomic omens. This tablet is highly unusual in including illustrations of some of the unusual features on which the experts based their opinions. For instance the first complete illustration, which looks like the letter 'Y' is apparently meant to represent a palm-tree and to be a mark of good luck. Where on the human body the expert might find something looking like a palm-tree is not explained. In total, this tablet comprises 8 pictures, 3 pieces, and 2 columns of inscription written in cuneiform.
