Records of the Past 2nd Series, Vol. IV
Edited by A.H. Sayce
This installment of the Records of the Past includes numerous historical stelae, extremely valuable for the study of ancient geography and history. The place names in these records of conquest by such figures as Shalmaneser II and Assur-Natsir-Pal range over the ancient Near East as far afield as Armenia.
