Historical resources we have about Neo-Elamite history is overall obscure and sporadic. The royal inscriptions left behind from the period lack the established narrative and political history. In addition, Elamite texts do not reveal the year of historic events, making it difficult to place evidence in chronological order. Due to these limitations, Neo-Elamite history is a construct based upon Mesopotamian sources including Assyrian inscriptions, official correspondence, and the Babylonian Chronicle. These sources are used to help fill in the gaps in our knowledge of the time.
