Army Campaigns even if the various occasions of Sennacherib’s reign are good documented in his res gestae, the interior chronology of his twenty-four-year reign isn't as convinced as one would favor. there's hassle not just concerning the particular years of a few of the royal expeditions, but in addition approximately what percentage there have been. the matter of courting arises out of the truth that Sennacherib’s campaigns are normally no longer dated via eponym or regnal 12 months, yet are basically numbered sequentially as first, moment, 3rd, and so on. 12 The respectable numbering, which fits as much as 8 within the extant corpus, integrated purely expeditions individually led by means of the king. Campaigns led via Sennacherib’s officers have been often excluded from royally subsidized compositions. of these, despite the fact that, have been recorded in a few authentic inscriptions, yet they have been by no means given an legit crusade quantity. This intentional omission of occasions and the truth that few texts written after his sixteenth regnal yr (689) live on this day make it most unlikely to grasp the precise variety of campaigns. Chronographic texts, regrettably, shed little mild in this challenge, because the Eponym Chronicle isn't preserved aside from the start of his reign, and because the Babylonian Chronicle is anxious basically with occasions in Babylonia (and Elam). in addition, the latter textual content files occasions via the regnal years of Babylonian kings, irrespective of Sennacherib’s regnal years. thirteen therefore, regardless of the various assets for Sennacherib’s reign, there are nonetheless many gaps in our wisdom. In overall, twelve campaigns are recorded within the extant corpus of Sennacherib’s inscriptions. those came about among his accession yr (705) and his sixteenth regnal yr (689). occasions from his seventeenth regnal yr (688) to his demise in 681 (his twenty fourth regnal year), although, are thoroughly unknown. 8 campaigns got an legit quantity, whereas the opposite 4 weren't. campaigns led by way of the king’s officers also are identified. these occasions have been by no means given an legit crusade quantity; their date, although, is called one inscription documents the regnal years within which they happened (696 and 695; Sennacherib’s ninth and tenth regnal years). it really is uncertain how the second one conquest of Babylon (689), that is known as his moment crusade within the Bavian Inscription,14 and the crusade to Arabia have been targeted in Sennacherib’s annalistic texts on account that experiences of the previous occasion aren't preserved in extant starting place inscriptions (those written on clay prisms) and because the latter occasion is understood purely from a badly broken precis inscription, a textual content the place legitimate crusade numbers 12 In so-called “double datings” present in a few colophons from Sennacherib’s reign, there are a number of inconsistencies with reference to his 1st regnal yr (705, 704, or 703). it's been prompt that those discrepancies arose as the Assyrians weren't familiar with relationship texts through regnal 12 months (that is, in a Babylonian style) or simply because Assyrian scribes didn't continually in attaining precision whilst calculating dates based on various calendrical structures.
