Sargon The King of Assyria - Isaiah 20:1
The case of Sargon provides a good illustration of the value of archaeology in relation to the Bible. Sargon is one of the forgotten persons who has been brought to life by the archaeological pick, and he provides a great illustration of the historical trustworthiness of the Bible.

The Palace of Sargon of Assyria

James Orr commented in 1906, "Ancient writers knew nothing of him (Sargon). He was a mystery: some did not hesitate to deny that he ever existed.” Late in his reign Sargon built a new capital city, which he called Dur-Sharrukin ('the fortress of Sargon'), known today as Khorsabad. Among the buildings was a magnificently sculptured palace, which was discovered by the French archaeologist Paul-Emile Botta between 1842 and 1844. The British Museum has numerous artifacts depicting Sargon including the “Sargon Vase” which contains an inscription with his name on it. The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago contains information and photographs of the early excavations of Sargon’s palace.

Sargon Brick Inscription
The Vatican Museum’s collection includes an inscribed brick from Sargon’s palace in Khorsabad. The inscription celebrates the construction of the city and of the palace:

"Sargon, king of the universe, built this city: Dûr-Sharrûkin ("The fortress of Sargon") is it's name; inside it he had this unrivalled Palace built.” - Sargon Brick Inscription
