The fall of Samaria is narrated in 2 Kings 17. The cuneiform engravings managing this occasion are prima facie contradictory: the conquest is ascribed to both Shalmaneser V and Sargon II. The surmise of H. Tadmor that Samaria was dominated twice is investigated. At the exact same time the occasions are interpreted in their socio-historical framework.Tadmor"s assumption cannot be falsified, although his theory have to be modified as regards the day of the first conquest: 723 B.C.E. The fevery one of Samaria can be taken as an inevitable outcome of the expansion of the Assyrian Empire in combination via inner battles in Israel. Evidence of deportation reveals that deportees were treated as normal citizens.Thorough discussion of the resources and their interpretation is a function of this book.
