Shalmaneser III in the West

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article re-examines the relations between Assyria, Aram-Damascus and Israel in the period of Shalmaneser III and his son Shamshi-Adad V (858-811 BC) in light of the new edition of the Assyrian Royal Inscriptions published in 1996 by A. K. Grayson (RIMA 3) and the Booty Inscriptions of Hazael. The author reconsidered the following issues: the battle of Qarqar, the Assyrian campaigns to the West in 849-848 BC and Israel's foreign policy during Jehu's reign, pointing out the advantages of Jehu's departure from the anti-Assyrian coalition.
