See W. Kleiss, “Ausgrabungen in der Urartaischen Festung Bastam (Rusahinili) 1969,” Archaeologische Mitteilungen aus Iran (AMI) N.F. III (1970), pp. 7–65; “Ausgrabungen … 1970,” AMI N.F. III (1972), pp. 7–68; “Die urartaischen Anlagen in Bastam nach der Grabung 1975,” AMI N.F. 7 (1974), pp. 107–114. It has also been suggested that the design may have originated in Egypt, although the evidence is rather weak. See also John S. Holladay, “The Stables of Ancient Israel,” in The Archaeology of Jordan and Other Studies, ed. L.T. Geraty and L.G. Herr (Berrien Springs, Ml: Andrews University Press, 1986), p. 111. Some very good scholars have recently concurred with Holladay’s conclusions—for example, Stager, “Archaeology of the Family in Ancient Israel,” Bulletin of the American School of Oriental Research (BASOR) 260 (1985), pp. 1–35.
