This is a very rare religious and mythological subject on a 19th c. openwork brass button depicting Asshur. I wonder if the ruins of Ninevah are completely gone now? Hopefully the "Lion Wall" was housed in a museum somewhere.... It is 1 & 3/8" in excellent condition. The subject was historical personage ("real men"), a mythological god, and a religious leader.
