Leading Assyrian Dates

Assyrian history is best gleaned from the Bible, although much can be obtained from profane sources, especially from the monuments unearthed at Nineveh, many of which are now to be seen in the British Museum.
The leading dates are the following:

—Nineveh builded by Asshur (Gen. x. 11), about B.C.2250; Assyria became independent of Babylon and obtained supremacy, about B.C. 1700;
Babylonia invaded and conquered by Assyria, about B.C. 1300; after the death of Tiglath-Pileser I. Assyria declined in power (in the prosperous days of Israel, under David and Solomon), about B.C. 1100;
Assyria again invades and conquers Babylon, about B.C. 890;
uprise of the mighty Assyrian Kings and Builders: Asshur Nasirpal,about B.C. 885; Shalmaneser II., about B.C. 800;Tiglath-Pileser III., about B.C. 745; Shalmaneser IV.,about B.C. 727; Sargon, about B.C. 722; Sennacherib,about B.C. 705; Esarhaddon, about B.C. 681.
