An interesting map of ancient kingdoms, city-states and tribes in the area of south-west Fertile Crescent, 9th-8th centuriesBC. It is supposed to present specifically the kdms of Israel and Judah, but another interesting feature is

the detailed presentation of the surrounding states as well. Note that the ‘Phoenician and Philistine states’ are refered specifically to city-states. Also note the presence of the Assyrian Empire in the far north of the considered area. Soon, the Assyrians subjugated or made subordinate all the states in the map, excluding the Bedouin tribes.
