Representations of battering rams and siege towers in Early Bronze Age glyptic art
Nadali, Davide

Data: 2009
Resum: Based on the textual evidence of the existence of battering rams and other siege engines in Early Bronze Age Syria (third millennium BC), the study suggests that the representations of tilt-wagons on Syrian cylinder seals and seal impressions from Tell Beydar (Syria) might be interpreted as depictions of battering rams, involved in war actions against castles, siege towers and schematic images of fortified settlements.
