Tablet of Sargon's 8th Campaign

His Eighth Campaign was meant to put an end to the dispute over Mannea and produce a lasting pro-Assyrian government. In the form of a letter to the god Assur, this tablet relates the eighth military campaign led by Sargon II against, among others, the kingdom of Urartu, which englobed Armenia and Kurdistan. The text, of 430 lines, tells how the king led the operations and captured the holy town of Musasir." [Mesopotamia] [People]
