Abstract

This paper critically analyses the building accounts of the late Neo-Assyrian royal inscriptions by interrelating and comparing those from various periods. The book chapter shows that the “building history” given in the royal inscriptions refer only selectively to the predecessors’ building works and often appear misleading or incorrect.
