Here are a few photos of Lullubi skirmishers, a small Lullubi war band and a couple of Sumerian and Akkadian command figures. The Lullubi were a group of tribes based in Lulubum, the present day Sharazor plain of the Zagros Mountains in Iran. They were defeated by Sargon the Great of Akkad and his grandson Naram Sin, who erected a famous victory stele, to commemorate their defeat. Lullubi, Gutians and Hurrians probably served in large numbers in the armies of Akkadian kings and later kings of the Third Dynasty of Ur (Stillman & Tallis, Armies of the Ancient Near East 3000 BC to 539 BC p.129). Figures are by Cutting Edge, Eureka and Castaway.
