The eighth-century-BC Assyrian king Sargon II (r. 721–705 BC) had several royal residences constructed in the citadel of his new capital, Dūr-Šarrukīn (modern Khorsabad). Residence M, which has constructed on the western side of the citadel, is presumed to have been for one of the highest officials of the Assyrian Empire.
