A set of Assyrian palace reliefs narrate the Assyrian victory over the kingdom of Judah.  Lachish was an important city in Judah, second only to Jerusalem.  In 701 BCE, the Assyrian army attacked the city from the south because of the steepness of the northern side, where the Jewish defenders situated themselves on the walls.
