Chapter 7 discusses Esarhaddon’s attempts to turn Kalḫu into a major royal city once again by rebuilding its Military Palace and by building a new palace on its citadel. These efforts were not intended to replace Nineveh as primary royal city, but to provided Kalḫu with new major palaces of its own. The work in Military Palace was limited to its southern area where new walls and some rooms were constructed. The Southwest Palace on the citadel was never finished, but would probably have become similar to the later North Palace in Nineveh in its size and monumentality.
