An early study of the Babylonian kudurru (boundary stone) inscriptions of what is now known as the Kassite Era, this booklet presents a self-contained exploration of two of the markers. Focusing on Kudurru Inscriptions III Rawlinson 43 and III Rawlinson 41, Belser gives transcriptions and translations of both texts. A detailed commentary follows the presentation of the actual texts, and this is accompanied by notes from the original drawings of the text. Carefully reproduced full text hand-drawn copies are also included, providing indications of lacunae and other trouble-spots. This original study, undertaken by a scholar with the breadth of language ability represented by Belser, is bound to be useful to students of Akkadian, boundary stones, or even the astronomical implications represented by this genre of texts.

Carl Wilhelm Belser (1860-1898) studied at the Universities of Michigan and Leipzig. A Lutheran pastor, he taught a variety of languages at the University of Michigan, Carthage College, and the University of Colorado.

The Syriac Dot

A Short History
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0425-9
The dot is used for everything in Syriac from tense to gender, number, and pronunciation, and unsurprisingly represents one of the biggest obstacles to learning the language. Using inscriptions, early grammars, and experiments with modern scribes, Dr. Kiraz peels back the evolution of the dot layer by layer to explain each of its uses in detail and to show how it adopted the wide range of uses it has today.
