      There may be historical material in Kings not derived from the Babylonian
      chronicles.

      Ahab was described as going to fight the King of Aram in Ramath Gilead
      east of the Jordan River (Ramath Gilead was supposed to be the birthplace of
      Elijah the Tishbite). This would have been near the land of the Moabites.
      Ahab was killed in the battle.

      The Moabite stela claimed Mesha killed the son of Omri and took land from
      Israel. Mesha of Moab may have sided with Aram at Ramath Gilead and used
      the Aramaen victory to temporarily displace Israel as claimed in his stela.

      2Kings 1:1 After Ahab's death, Moab rebelled against Israel.

      In Kings 3 Israel claimed Mesha and Moab who used to be subservient had
      rebelled and afterward Israel entered Moab with a large force attacking from
      the direction of Edom to the south instead of Aram to the north put down
      the rebellion.

      Was this history in Kings II not from Berossus?
