Example text

Assyrian texts testify that the Israelites overthrew Pekah themselves, and biblical texts suggest that Hoshea led a joint Israelite and Judean force up from Judah, perhaps along the same road that Rezin and Pekah had traveled earlier, to recapture Samaria. 55 Upon success, Hoshea sent vassal tribute to the Assyrian king on campaign in southern Babylon. Thus, Israel returned to being an Assyrian vassal kingdom, probably with Judah once again a lesser partner. 45 Depiction of the Assyrian siege of an unidentified city.

Such exaggerations probably served the purpose of making Assyria's power seem even greater in victory, and providing ready explanations when victory was not clear. Of particular interest is the army attributed to Ahab of Israel: 10,000 soldiers, 700 cavalry, and 2,000 chariots - the largest chariot force in the coalition and one that was equal to that of Assyria at the height of its power in the following decade. The population estimates of the city of Samaria for this period suggest that Israel would have fielded a much smaller army, and even if one identifies stables in the archeological record at Israelite cities like Megiddo, there remains a lack of evidence for adequate horse facilities to support so large a chariot force.

Around 727, when Tyre was in open rebellion, Hoshea of Israel joined other regional rulers and withheld tribute from the new Assyrian king, Shalmaneser V. Hoshea, who had been established as a pro-Assyrian vassal, probably saw Tyre's assertion as a chance to escape from the economic burden of tribute payments to Assyria. Even before his official enthronement ceremony, however, Shalmaneser V campaigned into Syria-Palestine and secured the submission of local kingdoms. While the only source for this campaign is a description by the 1st-century AD Jewish historian Josephus, who claims to be quoting an earlier source that is relying on archives from Tyre, Shalmaneser V probably pressed into Syria and Phoenicia enough to compel them to sign vassal treaties with him, and then he immediately withdrew.
