This paper aims to present Sarduri II’s policy towards Assyria from a broader perspective. Contrary to his successors, Sarduri II’s rule has not been a subject of such interest among Assyriologists and Urartologists, which results from the character of the available sources. Although his Chronicle from Van, describing the first fourteen years of his rule, has been preserved, the last period of Sarduri’s reign is known to us only from Assyrian royal inscriptions and letters from the times of Tiglath-pileser III.
