The Correspondence of Sargon II, Part 2

Letters from the Northern and Northeastern Provinces

G. Lanfranchi, and Simo Parpola

This volume is a continuation of the publication of the correspondence of Sargon II begun in SAA 1. The letters published in this volume are of special interest because of the particular geographical area from which they originate. This area extends, in the shape of a broad crescent, roughly from the Euphrates of the Diyala river, surround and enclosing the Mesopotamian plain to the north and to the NE. From the geographical point of view, the various territories which lie in this wide area all share a common feature: they represent the transition from the alluvial plain or the piedmont to the highlands of Anatolia and Iran, such as the eastern Taurus or the Zagros chain.
