I have just received a copy of an interesting article by Stephanie Dalley, "Yaba, Atalya and the Foreign Policy of Late Assyrian Kings", SAAB 12:2 (1998) 83-98. Its central argument is that these two queens, wives of Tiglath-Pileser III and Sargon II, were Judean princesses. Be that as it may (and I understand there is an argument contra, which I hope is on its way), she mentions two other points that are of more Egyptian interest:

1) One of Essarhaddon's daughters was married to an Egyptian prince Sheshonk, who she identifies with Sheshonq of Busiris, according to the Assyrian annals.

2) Assyriologists now limit the date of the conquest of Egypt by Shabako to some time between 711 and 707, for which she gives the citation A Fuch, Die Annalen des Jahres 711 v, Chr (SAAS VIII) (Helsinki, 1998) 124-131.

I'm guessing that the argument is a negative one: that this annal shows that Shabako was not ruler of Egypt in 711, with the 707 date being presumably a result of the Tang-i-Var inscription

    Hi all Well-ll-ll, so Fred is investigating a reversal of Shabaka/Shabataka and seems to be quite enthusiastic about it (he has announced it here and on the NC list). And using many of the arguments... more

        Dear Chris, Shoshenq (Shu-sa-an-qu) was the son-in-law or brother-in-law (hatna sharri) of Sin-ahhe-eriba, but almost certainly in Nineveh, rather than Egypt. He stood as witness to a real estate... more

          ian -- Thanks for the additional information onn this Shoshenq. Re the conclusion that 711 is a TPQ, I have the source on order through ILL and will let you know, but you may well be right. Chris

        Hi all 1. AFAIK the only objection to my genealogy is that Shepenupet 2 is not the sister of Shabaka. I understand there is an inscription stating this, but does it use a generic term to describe the ... more

          Hi Joe, I am afraid the objections to your genealogy are far more serious than that. Not only is Shepenupet II not a sister of Shabaqo (she is the sister of Taharqo because she is the daughter of his ... more
