Ephraim Stern’s BAR article is based on the relevant chapter of his recently published The Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian Periods (732–332 B.C.E.), Archaeology of the Land of the Bible series, vol. 2 (New York, NY: Doubleday, 2001), pp. 304–331.); I will refer to both the article and the book, but principally to the latter, which, unfortunately, has no notes or references. I will also refer to relevant articles in Stern, ed., The New Encyclopedia of Archaeological Excavations in the Holy Land (NEAEHL), 4 vol. (New York, NY: Simon & Schuster, 1993), and Eric M. Meyers, ed., The Oxford Encyclopedia of Archaeology in the Near East (OEANE), 5 vol. (New York, NY: Oxford Univ. Press, 1997), both of which are well documented.
