5.2.1 Tecnologia bellica: fionda (nAss; assedio di Lachish). A total number of 66 slingers are depicted in the various reliefs of Sennacherib. The slingers only appear in siege contexts such as this depiction of the siege of Lachish. The soldiers in this detail are stationed behind archers at the back of the troops, suggesting that the range for slingers was greater than that of archers. Various flint sling stones were found at Lachish measuring approximately 5-6 cm in width.
