DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43990


Chapter Three examines the depiction of Solomon’s reign as described in 1 Kings 3-11. The biblical narrative recounts extensive inter- and intraregional interactions in the mid to late tenth century. This chapter provides a historical assessment of these accounts and evaluates how the claims contribute to current reconstructions of interactions.
