Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book On Art in the Ancient Near East contains the table of contents, introduction, and acknowledgements. This volume is a collection of essays on Neo-Assyrian relief sculpture and seals, Phoenician and Syrian ivory and bronze production, and inter-polity connections across the various cultures of first millennium B.C.E. from the Aegean to Iran. The articles reproduced cluster into three sub-sets: those dealing with the message-bearing component of Assyrian palaces, sculptures, and their decorative programs; those dealing with luxury goods, largely ivory and metalwork, produced in surrounding regions but often gathered within Assyrian contexts as well; and those with a focus on regional or cultural interactions, often with Assyria as one of the players.

Keywords: Aegean Sea; bronze production; Iran; Neo-Assyrian relief sculpture; Syrian ivory
