Amara Tablets[edit]

Known as Ziri-Basani in the Amarna Tablets. Ashtaroth was it's chief city, and was known as Astartu in the Amarna tablets of 1350 bc.

The Amorite king "Og" was probably a ruler during the Earliest Iron age, or about c. 1250 bc.

The Amorite king Sihon of Heshban evidently ruled contemporaneously with Og. --added 20 April 2006 by 207.225.65.89.

there aren't too many quotes[edit]

in the article so I removed the tag. --Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 13:09, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

References and quotes[edit]

The article is mainly quotes, so I cannot see how that previous removal was justified.

More importantly, there is no real content to the article. It should discuss Bashan - where it is/was, what it is/was, the area and its people, when it existed, who has discussed it in text and books and what they wrote about it.

To further develop the article these should be included with refs. Chaosdruid (talk) 13:11, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
