Cyrus Cylinder, First Human Rights Declaration, Honored

The ancient clay cylinder is on display at the Getty Center until December.

It's known as one of the first declarations of human rights - and it's on display at the Getty Center until December.

On Wednesday, USC Annenberg and the Center of Public Diplomacy paid tribute to the iconic Cyrus Cylinder.

Bearing Akkadian cuneiform script, the clay cylinder was discovered in Babylonian ruins.

USC experts like Prof. Nicholas J. Cull say the cylinder stands as a testament to multiculturalism and tolerance.
