Son of Sennacherib, and his successor as king of Assyria, 2 Kings 19:37; Isaiah 37:38; B. C. 896. It is only said of him in Scripture that he sent colonists to Samaria, Ezra 4:2 . He is supposed to be the Sardanapalus of profane historians, the last king of Assyria, infamous for his luxury and effeminacy. The city being besieged and nearly taken, he collected his favorites and treasures in his palace and set it on fire, so that all perished together in the flames.
