A detailed map of the Assyrian Empire, one of my favourite historical topics, at its greater expanse in 750-625 BCE. The map notes the limits of the empire during the reign of Sargon II (specifically in 720 BCE) and under Assurbanipal (in 640 BCE).

The tributary states are also noted (Edom, Kassites, Moab, Judah etc) and also the kingdom of Egypt, a rather temporary conquest of the Assyrians. The map also notes the Lydian kingdom, the Greek city-states in Asia Minor, Cyprus, mainland Greece, South Italy and Sicily and also the Phoenician settlements in mainland Phoenicia and in Sicily and Africa. Mainland Phoenician city-states were tributaries to the Assyrians. (from Sheppard’s Historical Atlas).

Also, a satellite map of the area to demonstrate the geographical setting.
