The [Book of the] Acts of Solomon is a lost text referred to in 1 Kings 11:41, which reads:

And the rest of the acts of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wisdom, are they not written in the book of the acts of Solomon?

In 2 Chronicles 9:29-31 the names of the writers of the royal household record are given:

the history of Nathan the prophet, the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and the visions of Iddo the seer concerning Jeroboam the son of Nebat

The biblical prophet Iddo was the author of other lost texts.[citation needed]

The Geneva Bible editors suggested that it was lost during the exile in Babylon.[1]

This text is also referred to as the Book of the Annals of Solomon [2] or the Book of the Chronicles of Solomon.[3]
