Review of RINAP 5/1 (Review)
Author(s): Johannes Bach
Publication: Journal of Near Eastern Studies
Date: 1/23/2020
Abstract: Concluding paragraph of review: "The publication of RINAP 5/1 will without doubt be fundamental for future research on the reign of Ashurbanipal. The entire RINAP series has already greatly facilitated Assyriological research and the physical publication of RINAP 5/2, whose content is largely already available on ORACC, is eagerly awaited. The reviewer wishes to thank and congratulate the authors of RINAP 5/1 for their excellent and diligent work."

Review of RINAP 2 (Review)
Author(s): Bieke Mahieu
Publication: Revue biblique vol. 129/2 (2022) pp. 285-286
Date: 8/22/2022
Abstract: Last two paragraphs: Frame must be warmly thanked for the present edition, not only because of its quality, but particularly because of its completeness. Thus far, one had to rely on the precious but outdated work of Daniel David Luckenbill (Ancient Records of Assyria and Babylonia, vol. 2, Chicago, IL, University of Chicago Press, 1927) for a survey of Sargon’s inscriptions. This is the first edition, since one century, that again covers all the material of Sargon II. Thanks to RINAP 2, Sargon II’s inscriptions can be studied with all the information that has enriched the field since Luckenbill’s translation. The book is a very welcome tool, not only for Assyriologists, but also for any biblical scholar who is interested in the historical context of the divided kingdom, particularly for those working on the context of the fall of Samaria and the end of the northern kingdom.
