Assyrian Magic Incantation from the Series Hulbazizi, c. 900-600 BC

In Assyrian cuneiform on white chalcedony, with a fine detailed visage of the demon Pazuzu combining human and lionine features, deeply carved on one side, and a winged solar disc beneath the text which says:

MAY SÎN, LORD OF THE CROWN, QUIETEN YOU; MAY NINURTA, LORD OF WEAPONS, BREAK YOUR WEAPONS; MAY NERGAL, LORD OF THE NETHERWORLD HOLD YOU IN BATTLE; MAY EA AND ASALLUHI CUT OFF YOUR POISON. CLEAR OFF!
