Abstract

A study of the 8th campaign of Sargon II (722-705) against Urartu. The study gravitates around the question of the numerous sensorial perceptions (especially sight, hearing, and smell) that pervade the literary descriptions of the campaign. I argue that the presence of such sensorial descriptions is strongly connected to the literary form in which the campaign is reported: a Letter to the God Ashur.
