The Iron Age Aramaean states played a very significant role in the history and civilization of the Neo-Hittite kingdoms. This chapter provides an overview of the history and various aspects of the civilization of the Aramaean peoples, with particular emphasis on their interactions with the Neo-Hittite and Neo-Assyrian kingdoms. The individual Aramaean states discussed in the chapter include Bit-Agusi, Bit-Adini, Sam’al, (Aram-)Damascus, and Soba. Their rulers and ruling dynasties, where known, are discussed in some detail, with summaries in Appendix II.
