vanishedone commented on the word lamasu
B.B.C. News: 'There were statuettes, just five or six inches high, representing Babylonian kings and Sumerian warriors and princesses. And there was a lamasu - the winged ox that was the symbol of Assyrian strength, and silverware and jewellery.'Is this the same as lamassu/lammasu?
