I'm looking for a picture of what Hamblin describes as the "Akkadian rectangular sickle-axe". Apparently it looks like a crescent axe but the blade has a more square shape.

That reminds me of a "sickle-axe" found in the Levant that was basically a sickle with a rectangular axe-blade on the back. I think the example I saw was much later than Akkadian. Is the term "sickle-axe" used to describe crescent axes?
