Critical Edition, with Introductions, Translations and Commentary
Second printing with addenda et corrigenda 2007
Assyrian royal scribes kept detailed records of the epoch-making campaigns and achievements of Tiglath-pileser III (r. 745–727 BCE), founder of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. The fragmentary remains of these inscriptions were discovered at Nimrud in 1845, but most of them were lost or reburied, leaving later scholars to rely on critically flawed editions.
In preparing his edition, Hayim Tadmor returned to first-hand copies of the texts, many of them prepared at the site. Their evidence is supplemented by related inscriptions discovered at Nimrud and elsewhere. The transcribed Akkadian text is accompanied by a critical apparatus, an English translation and an extensive philological and historical commentary. The introductory material, excursuses and supplementary studies treat a panoply of scholarly issues relating to the texts, including their historical and biblical context. Copious plates show the cuneiform texts in full and illustrate their positions in the original settings.
