I was amazed to find in your article today an illustration of a Mari Investiture panel from Old Babylon showing the purported goddess, Ishtar, with a lion under her foot. The illustration was striking, as just yesterday I came across a similar representation of 15th century A.D. Piers Gerard, Esq. standing on a very similar looking lion. Who could imagine such a coincidence, or might there be some medieval connection with the old Babylonian rite? (See: “The monumental Brasses of Lancashire and Cheshire,” by Thornely, James L, p.65. https://www.google.com/books/edition/A_Genealogical_and_Heraldic_History_of_t/LKIKAAAAYAAJ?q=&gbpv=1#f=false ).
