Sukkoth-Benoth is a god said to have been worshipped by the Babylonians who were resettled in Samaria by an Assyrian king (2 Kgs. 17.30). These new “Samarians” may have been transferred to the territory of the former Israelite state either by Sennacherib (ARAB 2.234, 339–341) or Ashurbanipal (ARAB 2.791–798), both of whom fought in southern Mesopotamia; cf. too, Ezra 4.9–10 (see Becking 1992:95–97). Neither the double-name of the god nor its individual components is known from cuneiform sources.
