In this early study of the sources then newly recovered from Sippar, Friedrich offers a monumental amount of information. Sippar had yielded thousands of clay tablets and these were still being published in this period. Friedrich begins with the dated sources from the reigns of Sin-umballit, Hammurabi, Samsu-iluna, Abiesuh, Ammi-ditana, and Ammi-zaduga. This is followed by the sources that are not dated, those approximately assigned and those not assigned at all. Texts are given in transliteration and translation, and commentary is included. The next section concerns the representation from seal impressions, those categorized by gods and those categorized by epic. A comparison of names and an overview of published cuneiform texts also play a role in the discussion. The texts are presented in line drawings and photographs of cylinder-seal impressions conclude the work. With illustrations throughout, this brief study is an essential source for Old Babylonian resources located at Sippar.

Thomas Friedrich (1855-1927) taught at the University of Innsbruck.

Zur Erklärung der Babylonisch-Assyrischen Brieflitteratur

Series: Analecta Gorgiana 92
ISBN: 978-1-60724-011-2
In this formative study of the Babylonian and Assyrian letters, originally published over three articles in Beiträge zur Assyriologie, Delitzsch presents in transliteration and translation, 40 Akkadian letters, along with critical notes and remarks. These letters are addressed to the Queen-Mother and to the King and generally date from the Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian periods and contexts. An example of early analysis of the still-young discipline of Assyriology, this study provides insights into the dynamics of royal life in the late Mesopotamian empires.
