Altar built during Solomonís reign at  His fortress city of Megiddo. Though  probably used in worship of Jehovah, it was not Scripturally  correct to do so, God had designated Jerusalem for  such activity. 

 ca.  900 BC



Now Solomon loved the LORD, walking in
 the statutes of his father David, except he
sacrificed and burned incense on the high
 places (1 Kings 3:3)




Sometimes the Old Testament refers to
the "horns of the altar" referring to the four
projections at the upper corners.







To the north, Assyria was gaining power under  Ashernaurpal II and others. It was beginning to expand and Ashernaupal IIís son, Shalmeneser, would later receive tribute from King Jehu and other Israelite kings. This minor Assyrian deity was found at the Assyrian capital city of Nimrud, built by Ashernaurpal II.
ca. 884-859 BC
