This paper focuses on the construction date of the Neo-Assyrian city walls on the western front of Ashur. W. Andrae and his team excavated the walls on a large scale and established that they were both referred to in Shalmaneser III’s inscriptions. However, a reconsideration of the archaeological and textual evidence suggests that not the „Binnenwall,“ but the „Niederwall“ was constructed at the same time as the „Außenwall.“ This implies that Shalmaneser III’s inscriptions actually never mentioned the „Binnenwall“ which was probably not built until the end or even sometime after of his reign.
