    Hi Sargon the 2nd. Period Scholars

    I read Yigile Yadians Art of Warfare in Biblical tines and the end of Cronicals Kings and early Samuel and of course the very short but heartfelt book of Natum (does um at the end of Nutum mean some whom was a graduate of the scribe school of Amun at Thebes?) and i was wonderibg if a person could guess-ta-mate the order battle of Egypt 26th dynasty Egypt or king Sargon Ii Assyria. Or the battle of Karkamish Order of Battle, or king Ahab’s order battle. Are there and representatiions of infantry or Marcavas (Chariots), or camel corps troops during that time? I’m guessing that The 25 dynasty and the 26 th dynasty gave up chariots, but that Judah had chariots in thehttps://www.google.com/maps/place/1028+Market+St,+San+Francisco,+CA+94102/@37.781883,-122.411323,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x808580851f803083:0x1a78d4b201d83141

    In chronicals we can see that during reins of king Ahab and His daughter Queen Athiah that Egypt that Israel had a few Markavah (chariots). Are there any artistic representations of late Assyria (Sargonid) Or 26th Dynasty chariots ir horse cavaltry or camelry?
    The 18th &19tj dynasty tombs of Egypt seem to be a weath of pictures of chariots and close order troops. I’m thinking that during the 700BCE that all of those societies had been beaten up or colapsed and the ver i formative military (Horus and Baal art) was no longer being produced? The book of Natum reads like war was very absolute to losers.
