Abstract: A new ‘barrel cylinder’ fragment of Sargon II, from an unknown provenance,is published herein. The fragment yields a summary report of events from Sargon’s reign up to his eleventh palû, in a geographical rather than in a chronological order. The 14 preserved lines are written in a NB ductus, closely resembling and partly overlapping those
of the barrel cylinder fragment ND 3411 from Nimrud. The text of the new fragment is reconstructed and studied here with the help of the corresponding lines in the above Nimrud fragment, the Khorsabad cylinders and a cylinder fragment from Nineveh (K 1660).
