About this Series

The series Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period presents editions (transliterations, translations, and textual commentary) of the official inscriptions of the rulers of Assyria from 745 to 609 BC. These inscriptions are mostly written in the Akkadian language and describe the military campaigns and building projects of these rulers, who reigned during the height of the Assyrian empire. Preserved on clay, stone, and metal artifacts from Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Turkey, these inscriptions document the march of Assyrian armies from their homeland in northern Iraq across the entire Near East, from Iran in the East to Egypt in the West, at a time when Assyria controlled the biblical kingdoms of Israel and Judah.
