F. DE BACKER, « Un plastron d’époque néo-assyrienne », Res Antiquae 9, Brussels, 2012.
The following study analyses the so-called “irtu” discs worn by some soldiers related to the Neo-Assyrian army as its military personal or its opponents. The written, visual and material sources will be collected and examined to present the data we can infer of them. Pictures and drawings illustrate this study of some practical aspects of armoury in the Ancient Near East during the Ist Millenium B.C. No need is to mention that the aim of this work is to prepare some basis for further research until we are provided with new data or evidence.
