Sargon

King of Assyria, successor of Shalmaneser 4, but called a usurper. His general, the Tartan, captured Ashdod. Isaiah 20:1 . He reigned B.C. 722-705. Though his name appears in scripture only in the above passage, it is believed that he accomplished the taking of Samaria which was begun by Shalmaneser. See SAMARIA. He made various conquests and strengthened the kingdom of Assyria, and built some of the palaces.
