The lately published inscription of Sargon II has stimulated a new discussion about the chronology of Dynasty XXV. It seems that Shebitku was appointed to be regent of Kush already early in the reign of his predecessor Shabaku. Yet, it is not necessary to change the hitherto accepted dates (Kitchen, Barta, v. Beckerath) for the reigns of the two Kushite rulers which are corroborated by the Assyrian synchronisms.
