NARAM-SIN was the grandson of the great King SARGON of AKKAD, and more importantly - he was named after SIN — the AKKADIANS' moon god. NARAM-SIN took the AKKADIAN thrown in 2254BC and reigned until 2218 BC, a time of great prosperity. The AKKADIAN Empire reached its zenith, and NARAM-SIN took the credit — becoming the first Mesopotamian king to claim divinity for himself, and one of the first to be called "KING OF THE FOUR QUARTERS".

A closer view of the Stele of Naram-Sin (c. 2350-2000 BCE, Akkadian Empire). Here, we can see the sculptor's use of hieretic scale to add power and authority to the king, and show the powerlessness of the small, defeated figures to the king's right. One small figure pleads for mercy; the other appears to be dying, speared.
