Ramesses II’s expedition against Moab was the subject of an important study by the British Egyptologist Kenneth A. Kitchen entitled “Some New Light on the Asiatic Wars of Ramesses II,” Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 50 (1964), pp. 47–70. Kitchen’s identification of the name Dibon in the Ramessid text at Luxor has been repeatedly challenged on the grounds (a) that the material reading is not clear, (b) that the geographical context of the name as the Transjordan is uncertain and (c) that the archaeology of the site of ancient Dibon shows no evidence of occupation in the time of Ramesses II. The Ramesses II map of the road from Arabah to the Plains of Moab, however, supports Kitchen completely.
