The modern name of the gate assigned to this entryway into the Kalhu citadel by its excavators. The name stems from the fact that the stone lion colossi erected on both sides of the gates are inscribed with texts written in the name of the ninth-century-BC Assyrian king Shalmaneser III (r. 858–824 BC).
