PREFACE 



More than a year ago the manuscript was ready for the press of what appears 
as Vol. XV (the tablets of which do not have in their dates the name of the king), 
including the discussions concerning the check-marks, stylus, seal, etc., which 
now appear in this volume (XIV). Since that time I have been able to prepare 
the texts with complete dates, the study of which I had begun more than three 
years ago. The publication of Vol. XV having been delayed, I rearranged the ma- 
terial contained in the introductions to both volumes. The discussions concerning 
the nomenclature of the documents appear in Vol. XV. In addition to the many 
names in the texts of that volume, I have added a large number, which I collated 
from hundreds of other tablets in our Museum, as well as from another small col- 
lection — also belonging to the Cassite period — making in all nearly seventeen hun- 
dred. [This volume, it will be noticed, contains a large number of additional names.] 
Discussions also concerning the many new Cassite names, as weU as the many 
hitherto unknown names of deities, appear in that volume. 

After the Introduction to this volume was in type an article appeared' in the 
Orientalistische Litter aturzeitung, Vol. 9, No. 3, by Dr. A. Ungnad, of Berlin, con- 
cerning the marks of the sisiktu as a substitute for the seal impression, found on 
a tablet belonging to the first dynasty of Babylon. As his account of the tablet 
did not mention anything concerning a hole (see my discussion of the sisiktu on 
page 13), I wrote to Dr. Hermann Ranke, of the Berlin Museum, asking him to 
ascertain whether there was not a small hole in connection with the cloth marks 
so clearly visible in the photograph of the tablet published by Dr. Ungnad. In 
a letter dated April 19th, Dr. Ranke writes : " Beneath the sir of Ishvm-nAsir really 
appears something like a little hole. As the edge of the tablet is somewhat destroyed 
it would not be absolutely safe to judge from this one instance whether the hole 
is accidental or not. The cloth impression is only beneath the word ziziktum which

Vlll PREFACE. 

was written after the impression had been made. I tried to copy the impression, 
but didn't succeed very well. It looks like the edge of something like cloth (the 
single threads being visible) as if it was from the end of a sleeve." As a matter of 
fact the hole appears in the photograph published by Dr. Ungnad. A reproduction 
of Dr. Ranke's autograph copy follows : 




This fully confirms the conclusions at which I had arrived (see p. 12), namely, 
that the sisiktu, which means something like "cloth" or "garment," must have, 
in some way, included or embraced that which could be used to make a small hole 
in the soft clay. As I said (see p. 13), two of the three Cassite tablets which contain 
the marks of the sisiktu have absolutely no trace of cloth marks, and it is by no means 
certain that the third has, inasmuch as it is very roughly made. One of the first 
two mentioned, however, as said before (see p. 13) may be an inside tablet, in which 
case the envelope would have contained the impressions. If this be true, the instru- 
ment pierced the envelope, and left its imprint upon the smaller tablet. 

The small volume of texts recently published by Professor Felix Peiser, a copy 
of which I received after the printing of these texts had been begun, also confirms 
an important conclusion at which I arrived. ISIU-BI-im I have explained as a 
Sumerian phrase, with the Semitic mimmation, i. e., it is equivalent to shumi{MU)- 
shu{BI) "his name;" and that where more than one name follows, it stands for 
"their names" (see p. 34, also Vol. XV, p. 22). This is proved by the Sumerian 
expression MU-NE-NE = shumi-shunu "their names", which appears several 
times in Prof. Peiser's texts, but which he simply translated " names. " 

Although of a similar character, i. e., documents from the administrative 
department of some temple (not the " archives of a banking family") they did not 
come from Nippur. The study of the proper names, as well as many other details 
clearly show this, among which may be mentioned the fact that the frequently 
occurring MU-BI-im at the top of the lists in the Nippur tablets is not used in his, 
as well as the fact that his MU-NE-NE is not found in our tablets, as far as I have 
been able to ascertain. 

A most interesting fact which his documents prove is the correctness of my 
identification of the god KUR-GAL as well as MAR-TU with Amurru, which I 
made by the help of the Aramaic tn, contained in endorsements written upon 
several documents of the Murashu Sons (cf. Vol. X, p. 7f.). The name of one of 



PREFACE. IX 

the storehouse officials of his texts is written: ''KUR-GAL-erish ''MAR-TU-erish, 
and also in an abbreviated form, with the " kosc suffix" A-mur-ri-ia. This conclu- 
sively establishes the fact that KUR-GAL as well as MAR-TU are to be read Amurru. 

In conclusion I desire to express my gratitude to the following who have ren- 
dered me helpful assistance in connection with this volume : to Dean Ilobbins, of 
the General Theological Seminary, New York City, who kindly permitted me to 
copy the tablets of the Hoffman Collection; to the Librarian of the Seminary, Mr. 
Edward Harmon Virgin, whose courtesies, and hospitality I enjoyed while at work 
upon the tablets; to Prof. Arthur W. Goodspeed, of the University, and his graduate 
student, Mr. George C. Chambers, who measured the impressions of the wedges 
made by the stylus; to Prof. W. J. Hinke, and to Mr. D. D. Luckenbill, the Harrison 
Fellow in Semitics, for their assistance in the proof-reading, as well as to the mem- 
bers of the publication committee : the Provost, and the Vice-Provost Prof. lulgar 
Fahs Smith, Mr. S. F. Houston, the president of the Archaeological Department, 
Mr. Eckley Brinton Coxe, the generous founder of the Fund which has made 
possible the publication of these texts, Mr. J. Levering Jones, and Prof. H. V. 
Hilprecht. 

It is with a profound sense of gratitude for all that has been done for me by 
our honored Provost, Doctor Charles Custis Harrison, who has been from the 
beginning one of the foremost promoters of our Babylonian researches, that I 
dedicate to him this volume, as a slight token of my appreciation of his kindness.

INTRODUCTION. 



The greater part of the tablets here published, as well as nearly all of those of 
Vol. XV, were discovered during the second Expedition to Nippur, sent out by the 
Babylonian Committee of the University of Pennsylvania, in the years 1889-90, 
under the directorship of Prof. John P. Peters, D.D. The tablets were found' quite 
close to the south-west wall of the palace, known as the " Court of Columns,"^ 
although at a sUghtly lower level. This palace was situated in the northern part of 
the western half of the city, opposite to the Temple of Bel, and almost directly west 
of it; from which it was separated by an ancient canal, known as the Shatt en-Nil, 
which divided the city into two parts. Nearly all of these tablets are of a reddish 
terra-cotta color, and are thoroughly baked; in consequence of which, they are 
unusually well preserved. According to Dr. Peters, "there was no trace of a wall 
immediately about them. ' ' 

To this original find additional discoveries were made by Dr. John H. Haynes, 
the director of the third expedition, 1893-94, on the same side of the canal, but in the 
southern part of the city. In his report he writes : " In the spring of 1893 and in the 
winter and spring of 1895, twenty-five thousand tablets [and fragments] were recov- 
ered from the ruins of this mound. Several rooms of an ancient palace were ex- 
plored and found to preserve the archives in the very position and arrangement in 
which they had been left when the building was destroyed. In several instances 
the tablets were placed on their edges, recUning against each other like a shelf of 
leaning books in an ill kept library of to-day. In other instances the tablets were 
found in great confusion, showing that at the time when they were buried they had 
fallen [perhaps from wooden shelves] into the debris which covered them." A few 
of these tablets were also burnt into terra-cotta, but the great majority are only 
sun-dried, or partially baked. Although, as stated, most of the tablets of both vol- 
umes come from the former find, a goodly number of this volume has come from 
the latter.

Z DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

Owing to the unfortunate fact that the 'provenance of much of the material 
excavated at Nippur is not known, there are some tablets here published which 
doubtless did not belong to the official archives, discovered in the northern or 
southern sections of the city, but are of a private character. With the excep- 
tion of about seventy tablets which are more or less fragmentary or badly effaced, I 
have included in this volume, irrespective of the contents, all that bear complete dates 
in the collections that have been classified to the present time in the University 
Museum. Fourteen' seem to be private contracts, and yet in some way they may 
have had connection with the archives, although it cannot be said that they were 
found in either the northern or the southern sections of the city, where the bulk 
of the documents was discovered. Practically all the inscriptions in Vol. XV 
belong to the temple archives. 

Through illicit diggings, or through the work of thievish Arabs about twenty 
tablets which belonged to these archives found their way to New York.^ They 
form part of the E. A. Hoffman Collection in the General Theological Seminary of 
that city. In a brief sketch of these tablets published by Dr. Hugo Radau {Early 
Babylonian History, p. 329)'' the one dated in the reign of Shibir sharru, as well as an- 
other recording a place name, Teliti'''', attracted my attention. Through the kind- 
ness of Dean Robbins I was permitted to copy them, and those containing complete 
dates, with one exception (No. 186), are included in this volume. The tablets 
in whose dates the name of the king is omitted, were collated, and some of the 
names inserted in the name list of Vol. XV. As had been surmised the determin- 
ative for place was not found after teliti,'* (see tablet No. 56a of this volume, 
which is No. 177 of the E. A. H. Collection). The word means ' ' crop. ' '' Further, 
the king introduced by Dr. Radau as Shibir, is the word ki-is-rum (see tablet No. 
146, which is No. 181 of the E. A. H. Collection). Instead of one sign, shibir (cf. 

' Nos. 1, 2, 7, 8, 11, 39, 40, 41, 119, 123, 127, 128a, 129 and 135. 

' That these tablets lielong to the . ame general lot is proved by the fact that the officials mentioned prominently 
in them: Innannu (E. A. H. 190, 192), Sin-issafira (E. A. H. 187), Irimshu-Ninib (185, 191), etc., are fiequently 
found in the texts of these archives. 

' The largest tablet of this Cassite collection (E. A. H. 195) Dr. Radau does not mention beyond classifying it as 
Neo-Babylonian, cf. p. 321 of his work. It is dated in the reign of Kadashman-Turgu. See No. 99a on Plates 59 and 
60 of these texts. 

* Prof. Homniel, Goegraphie und Geschichle p. 329 quotes Teliti as a place name from Radau's History. 

'This is determined by the usage of the word in Vol. XIV, 41: 13; te-li-it eqli"'Bel-a-nu i-ta-nap-pal "the crop 
of the field, Beldnu shall make good." For the root I would suggest rhj,'. It may have also a secondarj- meaning 
namely "taxes"; cf. Muss-Arnolt, Assyrian Dictionary, p. 1161; but these texts show that its primary meaning is 
"crop." Cf. also XIV, 79: She'um GISH-BAR-GAL sha i-na libhi te-li-ti sha za-ra-ti sha shattu 22*<>n "grain of 
the full tax which is from the crop of the fields of the 22nd year."

Briinnow List No. 8847) which he thinks he saw, there are three. And how Dr. 
Radau was able to see sharru on the tablet I do not understand. 

Attention has been called also to Gir-ri-a-ab-bi on another tablet (cf. No. 147). 
It is not impossible that it is a ruler's name, inasmuch as both determinative and 
shaiTu ' ' king" are quite frequently omitted (cf. Nos. 13, 14, 16, etc.). Unfortunately 
there is only one name of a person on the tablet, and it does not occur on any of 
the other documents published in either volume, so that the reign to which it belongs, 
cannot be determined by a comparison of its occurrences. The fact, however, that 
there is no gap in that part of the list of kings which these archives represent, into 
which it would fit, speaks against it being a ruler's name. A more probable reading 
is Gir-ri Tamtu{A-AB-BA) "Road Tdmtu". As a place name without a deter- 
minative, Tdmtu occurs in XIV, 58 : 50 and 53. Cf . also Girru{KAS)-Dur-ilu''', and 
Gir-ir-ru Mi-is-ru, Transactions, Department of Archceology, University of Pennsyl- 
vania, Vol. I, part 3, p. 223 f. Moreover, what seems conclusive evidence that 
Gir-7-i Tdmtu (or Tdmtim) is the proper reading, is to be found in text XIV, 134, 
where Girru{KAS) Tam-tim is written. 

The reigns represented in these texts are: Burna-Buriash (Nos. 1-9), Kuri- 
Galzu (Nos. 10-40), Nazi-Maruttash (Nos. 41-87), Kadashman-Turgu (Nos. 88- 
114), Kadashman-Bel (Nos. 115-117), Kudur-Bel (Nos. 118-124'), Shagarakti- 
Shuriash (Nos. 126-142), and Bitiliash (Nos, 143-145). To these have been appended 
several additional tablets classified after the others were arranged (cf. 3a, 9a etc.); 
as well as those from the New York Collection; a few with incomplete dates ;^ and 
several undated, which are of special interest. 

A few points of historical importance have come to light through the study of 
these documents : 

1. In a tablet dated in the reign of Kuri-Galzu (10: 56), mar sharri is written 
after the name Emid-ana-Marduk. This can only mean, ' ' son of the king. ' ' 

2. The number of years that each king here represented reigned according to 
the dating of the tablets are: Burna-Buriash, twenty-five; Kuri-Galzu, twenty- 
three; Nazi-Maruttash, twenty-four; Kadashman-Turgu, sixteen; Kadashman-Bel, 
six; Kudur-Bel, nine; Shagarakti-Shuriash, twenty-two; and Bitiliash, six. 

'After the plates were arranged I concluded that the name of the ruler in 125: 1, is to be restored Ku[ri-Gal!u] 
instead of Kii[dur-Bil\ 

' Most of the undated tablets can readih' be dated; for example, No. 146 bears the name of the official Innanu, 
who conducted the storehouse affairs during the reign of Kuri-Galzu. Nos. 151 and 158 doubtless belong to the time 
of Nazi-Maruttash, as it was especially in that reign that the official Martuku was at the head of affairs. By noting 
where the names found on the tablets, whose dates omit the ruler's name, occur in those bearing complete dates, it 
is possible to fix approximately the reigns to which they belong. Cf. Introduction to Vol. XV, p. 2. 



4 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

3. If there was a Kadashman-Bel in the Amarna period, the Kadashman-Bel of 
these texts, who is represented by three tablets, is the second by that name, and is 
the successor of Kadashman-Turgu. Most chronologers restore the name following 
this ruler in the well known king's list,' Kadashman-Buriash, who is mentioned by 
Shalmaneser I., but without sufficient reasons. The following, however, will show 
that the restoration must be Kadashman-Bel. 

a. In the first place no tablet has been found in these archives dated in the reign 
of the supposed Kadashman-Buriash, although all the other acknowledged rulers of 
the period, to which the tablets belong, are represented. 

h. If we do not take into consideration the three tablets dated in the reign of 
Kadashman-Bel, these temple archives, as far as those classified of the Philadelphia 
collection are concerned, are confined to the period covered by the reigns mentioned 
above. On the other hand, if these three tablets and the votive objects found at 
Nippur belong to the Kadashman-Bel of the Amarna period, they would be singularly 
isolated, and far removed from the others, being more than half a century earlier. 

c. The proximity of the reign of our Kadashman-Bel with that of Kadashman- 
Turgu and Kudur-Bel is indicated in the similarity of the writing upon the votive 
objects excavated at Nippur. Compare the small votive discs, Nos. 59 and 62 of 
Kadashman-Turgu, and No. 64 of Kudur-Bel, with No. 65 of Kadashman-Bel, in Hil- 
precht, Babylonian Expedition, Vol. I, Part 1. 

d. An argument of great weight is to be found in the consideration of the personal 
names found in the three tablets, dated in the reign of Kadashman-Bel, in connection 
with the occurrence of these same names in other documents. Shuqamuna-erish 
(116:4) is found in No. 57:26, dated in the thirteenth year of Nazi-Maruttash. 
Kidin-Rammdn (116: 2) occurs in the same tablet, i. e. 57:26; also in No. 101, dated 
in the following reign, i. e. Kadashman-Turgu; and also Nos. 131 and 132 of Shaga- 
rakti-Shuriash; in other words, before and after the reign in question. What may 
be regarded practically as conclusive evidence is to be found in connection with the 
occurrence of the name Irimshu-Ninib (1 15 : 2) . This prominent official of these store- 
house transactions is mentioned in Nos. 91, 96, 98, 99, 104, HI, 112, 114, 114b and 
115^ of the reign of Kadashman-Turgu. In other words his name occurs in these 
texts only during the reign preceding the king whose name is only partially pre- 
served in the king's list. It follows, therefore, that it is highly probable that 

' The order of kings based on the list and other sources is; Nazi-Maruttash, Kadashman-Turgu, Kadash , 

Shagarakti-Shuriash. 

' M6r-Irimshu-NINIB whose name is found in No. 136, belonging to the reign of Shagarakti-Shuriash, is doubt- 
less his son. 



DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. 6 

Kadashman-Bel, during whose reign this official also transacted business, followed 
or preceded the reign of Kadashman-Turgu. As the name of the latter 's predecessor 
is well known, and as the two characters preserved of his successor's name are 
Ka-dash, it follows that the name should be restored Kadash[man-Bel]. 

With the exception of about fourteen documents these inscriptions are records of 
the receipt of taxes or rents from outlying districts about Nippur; of commercial 
transactions conducted with this property; and the payment of salaries of the store- 
house officials as well as of the priests, and others in the temple service. In other 
words they refer to the handling and disposition of the taxes after they had been 
collected. 

This income is commonly designated as GISH-BAR, which is generally trans 
lated " tax" or " rent. ' ' Further, the kind of tax is stipulated : GISH-BAR-GAL, 
GISH-BAR KU-QAR, GISH-BAR SHE-BA, GISH-BAR tab-ki, GISH-BAR 4 qa 
(5 qa, 6 qa, 10 qa, and once 12 qa, cf. No. 106), and GISH-BAR KIN-SIG (35: 1).' 
GISH-BAR, 4 qa, etc., has no reference to the kind of tax levied, as it refers fre- 
quently to cereals; in No. 21 it applies to wine, and in No. 56 to animals. The same 
is true of the other terms. The tax was paid in all kinds of natural products, such 
as corn, sesame, oil, dates, flour, live stock, etc., — doubtless according to a relative 
standard of values. 

Exactly what the specification 4 qa, etc., refers to, cannol be determined. The 
temple, as in other ages, doubtless owned lands and other property ; and held endow- 
ments. The GISH-BAR scarcely meant rent for such possessions, because of the 
smallness of the amount, namely, 4 to 10 qa, which we would naturally think was 
according to the gur ( = 180 qa in this period) . It was more hkely either the amount 
of tax levied by the temple upon the gu7- of seed sowed, or harvested ; or per gur of 
land; or in other words, an income tax. Cf. the expression: te-li-tum GISH-BAR- 
GAL ' ' full crop tax, ' ' (100 : 1) . GISH-BAR-GAL (perhaps the same as ilki gamruti 
of the Murashu texts), doubtless, was the larger amount, namely, 10 qa. This seems 
to be confirmed by XV, 159 : 1, where the scribe had written 10 qa, which he erased, 
having made a mistake, after which he wrote instead, GISH-BAR-GAL. It may 
be the tithe or tax of the arable lands. GISH-BAR 4 qa, may be for the 
fallow lands, or the mininum which those who were less prosperous were expected to 
give. GISH-BAR SHE-BA(ipru) is doubtless a general term, meaning something 
like ' ' maintenance tax. ' ' What is paid out, especially to the average servant or 
tradesman, is called ipru (SHE-BA) or " wages" (see p. 29). 

' It seems that great care was taken to keep the different kinds of taxes separate; cf. XV, 115, in which is item- 
ized account GISH-BAR tab-ki, GISH-BAR KU-QAR and GISH-BAR 10 qa, are specified as having been paid. 



6 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

The purpose of this tithe or tax is set forth in a number of tablets, which the fol- 
lowing quotations will illustrate. The heading of No. 57 reads ■} ' ' Grain of the 6 qa 
tax, which, out of the crop of the 12th year of Nazi-Maruttash, from the town Zarat- 
IM, was given to the priests." The heading of XV, 84, reads :^ ' ' Grain of the 6 qa 
tax, which from BU-Ninib-apal-iddina, was given for the wages of the temple ser- 
vant." The heading of No. 153, Vol. XV, reads:' "Barley of the full tax, which 
for the salary of the riqqu and the KA-ZID-DA officers, Burahu brought to Nippur. ' ' 
The opening lines of No. 37, Vol. XV, read :' ' ' Grain of the full tax of the house of 
god, for the farmer and keeper of stores, which the town Zarat-IM gave, in the month 
Marches van, year 13th." This tax, in other words, was levied for the maintenance 
of the priest, temple servant, storehouse official, farmer, etc., as well as for general 
expenses. 

Further, it is quite clear that these are temple revenues. Payments are made 
out of the mashsharti sha ekalli, ' ' temple stipend" (Vol., XV, 47) ; out of the GISH- 
BAR-GAL bit-ili, "full tax of the house of god" (Vol. XV, 37); to the ardu and 
amtu ekalli "male and female temple servants " (Vol. XV, 152: 15 and 200, 111, 9, 
38). Besides the priests (ishshaku), who figured prominently in the salary pay- 
ments, the temple gateman (a-bil bdbi bit-a-nu, Vol. XV, 93), the singer (zammeru, 
6: 4), the temple shepherd {ndqidu sha biti, 132: 15), etc., are salaried officers. The 
temple in these archives is usually called bttinu ' ' our house, ' ' cf . VI gur LXXXIV qa 
SHE-BAR a-mi-lu-ti sha biti-nu "VI gur LXXXIV 5a, wages for the men of our house;" 
or simply bitu "house, ' ' cf . ipru mare bUi{-ti), "wages for the sons of the house" (Vol. 
XV, 200; 1, 38). The property handled also is spoken of as the possession of the god, 
cf. VI gur she'um GISH-BAR-GAL sha Hi (16 : 1). " 60 gur of grain of the full tax, the 
property of the god." Cf. also the interesting text No. 148, in which payments are 
made for sacrificial purposes as well as for the maintenance of a large number of 
temples and shrines. These are headed by Ekur. They were doubtless within the 
temple court, or at least in Nippur. 

There is little in these documents to show that the revenues were collected in 
the interests of the state, or that the king was a beneficiary, unless perhaps tablet No. 
25:3 of Vol. XV, which reads: sha a-na SHE-BAR Nippur''' ii DUr-Ku-ri-Gal-zu, 
"which is for the maintenance of Nippur and DUr-Ku-ri-Gal-zu;" the latter place

being probably a royal fortress. In the tablet referred to (No. 148), amounts are 
also paid, sha si-ri-bi-shu sha sharri, a-na nu-ri sha sharri, a-na nu-ri biti-nu, a-na

The understanding doubtless is, that the temple was not only the foremost 
institution of the city, but that it practically supported and controlled everything in 
its immediate vicinity. 

This income was received from quite a number of towns, which belonged pre- 
sumably to the environs of Nippur. In the transactions deahng with these revenues 
not only the kind of GISH-BAR is mentioned, whether it was SHE-BA, or so 
many qa, etc., but also the town from which the taxes were received. These facts 
were perhaps recorded in order that the records might show what disposition had 
been made of the incoming revenues received from the various storehouses and 
estates, in and about the city. 

In a topographical map from Nippur published by the writer (cf. Transactions 
of the Department of Archaeology U. of Pa. Vol. II, p. 223 ff), the exact provenance 
of which is not known, but which for paleographical reasons belongs to this period, 
the relative positions of a number of these small towns are given. Those mentioned 
in the temple records which are found on the map are Kar-Nusku, Tukulti-Ekur, 
KarH and Zaqar. ... A canal is represented on this map, called "^"^"Tukulti-Ekur, 
which passes by the city bearing that name. The two lines which represent the 
canal join two others, above and below, running at right angles to it. Between the 
lines of the upper is written: Na-la-ah; and between the lower: eqil Si-mi-la-ti. Ihe 
town Similati is indicated by a little square on the left edge of the tablet. In dis- 
cussing this map I suggested that eqil {ASH A) was a mistake of the scribe for ndru 
\A-1D) ; and that Nalah, also represents a canal. The latter can now be proved to 
be in accordance with fact. In a letter, C. B. M. 3527, the following occurs: me-e 
^'■^Na-la-ah, "Waters of the canal Nalah." It is possible that in this business 
department of the temple, there was a complete set of similar topographical maps of 
the entire district about Nippur, or at least of those towns from which the temple 
derived its revenues. 

After the taxes had been collected they were either brought to Nippur; or if 
the town had a storehouse, they were deposited in it. A good many of the docu- 
ments refer to the fact that the commodities were taken from a storehouse (karH) 
of a certain town. The taxes from small hamlets or estates were doubtless brought 
to Nippur and deposited in one of its storehouses, or used for immediate payments, 
or for business transactions. Several storehouses were located in Nippur, as is nat- 
urally to be expected, inasmuch as the taxes were paid in kind, which included ani-

mals as well as grain and general produce. Mention is made of the bit karii sha Nip- 
pur''^ ' ' Storehouse of Nippur ' ' (XIV, 111:4); the miksu shaplu ' ' Lowery granary ' ' 
(XV, 29:4); abullu "Gate" (XIV, 58), etc., where stores were kept. 

The official who figures more prominently than all others in both the volumes 
of these archives, is Innannu. All the tablets in which this name occurs, with the 
exception of one, which is dated in the reign of Nazi-Maruttash, belong to the reign 
of Kuri-Galzu. No title appears in connection with his name, with a possible 
exception of Vol. XV, 39 : 24, where tupsharru ' ' scribe ' ' appears after a certain Innan- 
nu. He is represented as receiving the taxes (cf. VoL XV, Nos. 99, 109, 112, 115, 
etc) ; and a great many receipts record him as making disbursements (cf . Vol. XV, 24, 
32, 57, 63, 93, etc.). In some, it is stipulated that debts shall be paid to him (cf. 38, 
etc.) ; the salaries of the riqqu, KA-ZID-DA and other officials are paid by him (cf . 
Vol. XV, Nos. 3, 104, 114, etc.) ; and it is with the riqqu and the KA-ZID-DA officers 
that he has drawn up the " tablet of trust" duppu rikisti (cf. XIV, No. 42). 

Martuku is the principal official during the reign of Nazi-Maruttash. In the 
closing years of the preceding reign {i. e. Kuri-Galzu) he is mentioned once, as well as 
twice in the succeeding reign (Kadashman-Turgu) . Neither is his title mentioned, 
except in No. 56 where he is called arad sharri "servant of the king." In C. B. 
M. 3511, however, there is a certain Martuku, who is a physician (dsu). In Nos. 45, 
76, etc., he makes disbursements ; in Nos. 79, 92, etc., amounts are paid, according 
to his order; in No. 49 payment is made to him; in others. Vol. XV: 26, etc., pay- 
ments of salaries are made by him. 

Irimshu-Ninih is another official mentioned in these texts, who acted in a similar 
capacity. He conducted affairs in the following reigns, namely, Kadashman-Turgu 
and Kadashman-Bel. In Nos. 104, 112, etc., he receives incoming taxes. In Nos. 
98, HI, 115, etc., he grants loans; and in Nos. 91, 96, etc., he pays salaries to other 
officers. These three prominent officials, therefore, without taking a few tablets into 
consideration may be said to succeed each other. During the time Innannu acted in 
the capacity mentioned, an individual, Sin-issahra, took a prominent part in the 
transactions. He seems to have acted as an agent for the storehouse (cf . Vol. XV : 
89) . In the succeeding years, Innannu, Martuku and Irimshu-Ninih were followed 
by others whose names, especially in this volume, are just as prominently mentioned, 
but not so frequently in Vol. XV. 

Two prominent offices are often referred to in these texts, namely, the riqqu and 
the KA-ZID-DA.^ Two of the former and one of the latter are usually mentioned 

• KA-ZID occurs 120: 27. It is doubtless the same official read KA-DUR, King, Letters of Hammurabi, III, p 
303. Cf. also KA-ZID-DA-KU, Vol. XV. 41 : .S 



DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. 9 

together (cf. Nos. 60, 62, 71, 77, etc.). The salaries they receive, together with the 
ishshaku ' ' priest, ' ' are higher than those of the ordinary craftsman, or temple ser- 
vant. From the contents it would seem that these officers acted as agents, repre- 
senting the Nippur storehouses in the collection of taxes in the different towns about 
the city. Perhaps the riqqu dealt more particularly with green produce, gathered 
as temple revenues, while the KA-ZID-DA may have had control over the cereals 
or flour. 

CASE-TABLETS. 

Nineteen of the tablets published in both volumes were encased. With the ex- 
ception of one, XV, No. 49c, the envelopes were removed after the seal impressions 
had been studied, and the inscriptions copied. In order to determine the process of 
case-tablet making, the writer made a number of experiments. The tablets were 
baked, as are the case-tablets of this period with but a few exceptions; and the 
conclusions arrived at by these experiments are as follows : 

The inside tablet was not burnt before it was enveloped. As the case contains 
the obligor's seal he could scarcely be detained by the scribe until the tablet had been 
burned. Further, it was not necessary to allow it to dry out before it was encased 
in order to prevent the envelope from clinging to it. Neither did they dust the tablet 
to avoid this before it was encased, according to the theory that has been advanced. 
Dr. King, in his Letters and Inscriptions of H,ammurahi, p. XXII, writes: "the 
former {i. e. the tablet) was prevented from permanently sticking to the latter (the 
envelope) by powdering it with dry clay. ' ' By experimenting it will be found that 
material thus used cUngs to the clay, and closes up the impressions of the stylus. 
The inner tablet I have found to be singularly free from anything which had the 
appearance of powdered clay. Immediately after the tablet was written, or after 
allowing the clay to set for a short time, so that it would not lose its shape when being 
encased, the thin layer of clay was folded about it. Occasionally the case chngs here 
and there to the tablet, but as a rule it can be removed without much difficulty. 

The scribe probably took a lump of clay and rolled it flat with an instrument 
at hand. By very little practice the proper amount could be selected. When rolled 
into a thin layer it would appear more or less round. It was then wrapped about 
the tablet, and what remained after the tablet was covered was easily broken off. 
If the material was not sufficient to cover the tablet, additional clay could be added ; 
and by dipping it into water, all the cracks could easily be removed with the fingers, 
or with a spatula. A smooth surface was thus obtained with little difficulty. 

The envelopes contain practically the same inscription as the tablet, although 



lO DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

frequently additional details are found upon them. Several envelopes make refer- 
ence to the seal impressions that are on them ; or they have occasional variant read- 
ings. In some cases the names of witnesses (XV, 30), or the name of the king (XIV, 
86) are not inscribed upon the inside tablet.' On the case of XV, 70, the date is one 
day later than that of the tablet, which may indicate that this particular document 
was encased the day after it was written, or the discrepancy may be accounted for 
as a mistake of the scribe. 

The question arises why were these administrative documents of the temple 
encased? Dr. Pinches thinks- that as " the inner tablet was never sealed, while the 
envelope is invariably covered with seal impressions, ' ' that there was another reason 
for encasing the tablet than to insure greater securit3^ In short, he considers that 
' ' they were a kind of ex-voto — something offered to a deity by means of a tablet, and 
sealed by the person who received the offering, thus attesting that it had really been 
made. ' ' Dr. Radau,' in translating a few small Sumerian temple documents that 
had been encased, sees in the omission of the verb on the case a desire to make the 
document a ' ' private transaction, ' ' so that no one could know whether the grain 
was bought or sold. But DUB is to be translated ' ' seal" (kunukku), and not ' ' tab- 
let" (duppu); and the words: "seal of Lugalkagina" make it clear that that indi- 
vidual was the recipient.' The use of the seal determines this (cf. p. 14). The other 
view referred to must also give away to what is more simple and practicable. 

The tablets of these archives which were encased may be divided into two 
classes. The first consists of records of debts, with or without the condition that the 
same shall be paid (cf. XIV, 86), and simple receipts (cf. XIV, 15, 20, etc). Some 
of the latter may also be regarded as records of loans. The official of the storehouse 
wrote the document, and it did not matter whether he made a record of the items as 
being paid out, or received by the other. Second, the series of aklv.m (salary) pay- 
ments (cf. XV, 8, 25, etc.) were encased. In other words, the same classes of docu- 
ments were enveloped as those upon which seal impressions were made (see p. 12 f.). 
Those of the former class contain the seal of the obligor, or in a few instances of his 
agent ; and those of the latter contain the impression of the delivering agent, who sealed 
the record of payment held by the official that sent out the commodities as salary. 

The reason why tablets of any class were encased was primarily for prudential 

' This fact would seem to indicate that a goodly iiutiibor of the small tablets in Vol. XV, which give in the date 
only the day, month and year, were originally encased, especially as they have the appearance of being inside tablets.

DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. 11 

purposes, as is generally held by Assyriologists. As the above mentioned ideas, 
however, have been advanced with reference to the enveloping of temple accounts, 
it seems appropriate, therefore, to discuss briefly the question. 

In the first place, as referred to, all these case tablets bear seals, or their sub- 
stitutes. The seal impression is equivalent to the signature of the modern docu- 
ment. It belongs to the man upon whom the obhgation rests, or who is the recipient 
mentioned in the tablet, or to whom the goods are dehvered. The other holds the 
document, who in this case is the official of the temple storehouse. Unless the obli- 
gor or the witnesses receive duplicate copies, what guarantee has he that the docu- 
ment will not be interfered with? Further, alteration was possible by either party, 
even if duphcate copies were made. If it was of sufficient importance to require the 
individual's seal, we would naturally think that he had a right to protect himself, 
and to take precautions that the document would not be altered, especially as we 
know that this was not impossible. The only way this protection could be assured 
was to encase the tablet, and for the obligor to make impressions with his seal upon 
the envelope. The holder of the document might be able to make changes on the 
case, but he could not peal it off to alter the tablet; because he could not restore the 
envelope which contained the seals of the obUgor. If in some way the case had 
become injured, or alteration was suspected, it would an easy matter to remove the 
envelope in the presence of the contracting parties, and thus verify the contract 
which had been entered into. In short, it is impossible to conceive of a better pro- 
tected document than a case-tablet properly sealed; whereas, an uncased tablet, 
although it contained seal impressions, could be altered. That the envelopes of these 
documents and not the tablets were sealed, therefore, is not surprising; and, contrary 
to the idea advanced, does not require us to seek another explanation than the 
above for the enveloping of the tablet. 

In some encased contracts, especially of the first dynasty of Babylon, both the 
tablet and the case were sealed; but the seal impressions on the inner tablets of 
this age, that I have noticed in the University collection, are not made upon the 
writing, but on the edges, or empty spaces of the tablet. This is significant. 

Those who have deciphered tablets, upon which seal impressions have been 
made, know how difficult the writing of some tablets is to read ; and that some wedges 
have totally disappeared, owing to the pressure of the seal upon the soft clay. In 
other words the writing may suffer when the seal impressions are made upon it. Is 
it not possible to see in this fact another reason why the tablet was encased? It was 
highly desirable to keep either the writing of the envelope or the tablet free from im- 
pressions. And it must be very clear that if one or the other of these documents 



12 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

was to be sealed, and that either was too small to make impressions upon empty 
spaces, the envelope would receive the impressions, for the above prudent reasons, 
as well as to insure accuracy in the document.^ On the other hand, even if the case 
were injured, it would be practically impossible to obliterate all the traces of the 
seal impressions, for they were made on the different sides of the envelope. 

Another reason why the envelopes of loans or records of debts were sealed, is 
to be found in the following expression, which occurs frequently in the tablets from 
these archives: SHE-BAR ana ""Irtmshu-NIN-IB i-nam-din-ma "''""kunukku i-hi-ip- 
pi ' ' The barley he shall pay to Irtmshu-Ninib, and the seal he shall break. ' ' (XIV, 
115, cf. also XV, 49), which proves that after the obUgation had been met, the case 
containing the man's seal was broken off. The inside tablet was doubtless preserved 
in the archives as a record of the transaction. In this way it is possible to account 
for many of the small records which have the appearance of having been encased. 

SEALS AND THEIR SUBSTITUTES. 

With the exception of XV, 30 and XIV, 86 which bear on the envelopes substi- 
tutes for the seal, swpur and sisiktu (see below), all cases contain seal impressions. 
Only six of the nineteen envelopes of both volumes 86, 114, 116, 129, 138 of Vol. 
XVI and 86 of Vol. XV mention the "^""kunukku (or sisiktu), and give the name of 
the individual whose seal made it. Contrary to the practice of the first dynasty of 
Babylon, when occasionally the inside tablet of some private contracts was sealed 
as well as the case, in but a single instance^ does an inside tablet of these archives 
contain the seal impression, although one (XV, 116) mentions the kunukku. The 
fact, therefore, that tablets No. 22, 29, 43, 45, 63, 79 and 98 of Vol. XV mention 
seals {kunukku or "^""kunukku), and do not contain seal impressions, show that they 
are either duplicates, in which case the usual word gabri ' ' duphcate" (cf. XIV, (111, 
1 15, etc.) is omitted ; or they are inside tablets, the cases having been removed. This 
being true, and taking into consideration the fact that only one of the nineteen tab- 
lets taken out of their cases refers to the seal impression which appears on the case, 
we have an additional reason (cf . above) why we should infer that a large percentage 
of the small tablets, of the kind of documents which were encased, originally had 
envelopes, especially as they have the appearance of having been encased, the in- 
dentation of the stylus being so sharply preserved. Perhaps the envelopes had been 
removed for reference; or in the case of tablets which were records of obligations, 

' Dr. Pinches, Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society, p. 818, because of variants, suggests "that the inner inscrip- 
tion was really a rough draught." 

' Cf. C. B. M. 10986. This may be due to the fact that the scribe did not intend to bake the document. 



DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. 13 

the same having been met, the cases containing the seals were broken (cf. p. 12). 
Quite a number of tablets, particularly small ones, bear seal impressions. These, 
however, have the appearance of being regular tablets, which had not been encased. 

Instead of "'""'kunukku, there is written on XV, 30, sisiktu (KU-SIG). Another 
tablet, i. e. XV, 55, which may have been encased, has : si-si-ik-ta-shu ki-ma "''""kunuk- 
ki-shu ' ' his sisiktu instead of his seal. ' ' On the latter no mark or impression is vis- 
ible, except on the left edge there is a small hole (cf. Plate XII, No. 37). If it is a 
tablet which had been encased, reference to the seal, or its substitute, as on No. 1 16, 
might have been made on the tablet, while the impression itself appeared only on 
the case. It has the appearance, however, of being a small tablet that had not been 
enveloped. The former (i. e. No. 30) is comparatively roughly made. If sisiktu 
means "cloth" or "dress" (cf. DeUtzsch, H. W. B. p. 506, and Jensen K. B. VI, 44 f.) 
it is possible to see very faint traces on the case of what might be regarded as im- 
pressions of such material. On the other hand, on the right edge, if the word has 
reference to something which could be used to prick a hole in the clay, while soft, 
an indenture, roughly made, is seen (cf. Plate XIII, No. 36). Tablet XIV, 86, how- 
ever, puts the matter beyond any reasonable doubt. The closing words of the case 
read ; supur "'NIN-IB-ahu-iddina sisiktu '"Nusku-di-na-an-ni ' ' Thumbnail of Ninib- 
ah,u-iddina, sissiktu of Nusku-dinanni ' ' . On the left edge are seven thumbnail marks, 
and on the lower left edge is a clearly defined hole about 2 mm. in diameter (cf. 
Plate XIII, No. 35). On this document, as well as on No. 55, there are absolutely no 
traces of cloth marks. About the smallholes of all three tablets there are marks which 
suggest the idea that they were made by an instrument, which did not have a very 
long projection, the base of which has left its imprint. 

On the meaning of the word 'sisiktu cf. Jensen's interesting discussion, Keil- 
inschriftliche Bibliothek, VI, p. 45. In the passage discussed Nebuchadnezzar is re- 
ferred to as standing before the image of the god, whose sissiktu he takes hold of. This 
the author thinks is his garment. The connection in which the word is found, 
cf . also Delitzsch H. W. B. p. 605 would seem to bear this out (cf . also Maklu, Series 
I; 1, 33). I have nothing definite to suggest beyond the fact that the indentations 
show that they were made by some kind of an instrument, which doubtless was rep- 
resented as being in the hand of the god ; or it was an object attached to his ' ' gar- 
ment;" or perhaps it was the end of his girdle to which something appended, which 
the worshipper took hold of when he stood before his statue. 

On tablet XV, 5, is written swpur (DUBBIN) ' ""Amel-ba-ni-i, " Thumbnail mark 

• The sign in Nbk.'l35: 4, which in Die Sprache der Contracte Nabii-ruX'id, p. 147, is placed among those of unknown 
value, is DUBBIN. Cf. also Dar. 367: 41. 



14 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

of Amel-bdni cf . also XIV, 35. Kima "'""'kunukkishu ' ' like his seal, ' ' is understood 
in both cases/ On the latter there are no thumbmarks visible. As mentioned above 
this is an indication that the tablet originally had been encased; or it is a duplicate 
(gabri). 

The use of the seal, or its substitute, in these inscriptions of the Cassite dynasty, 
is practically the same as in other periods. If the seal impression appears on a rec- 
ord of a debt, with or without the stipulation concerning its payment, or if it is found 
on a receipt, it always belongs to the man upon whom the obligation rested, or who 
had given the document as a receipt, cf. Nos. 5, 29, 30, 43, 68, 86, 98 of Vol. XV. 
This usage is in strict accordance with that which is found in the late contract tab- 
lets (cf. my Introduction to Murashu Vol. X, p. 5). This being true in the record of 
loans, or receipts, but not aklum (salary) payments, where the name is omitted in 
connection with the seal, or its substitute, it can be supplied ; as for instance in XV, 
55, sisiktashu kima kunukkishu refers to the sisiktu of Tdb-ashabshu; and the 
seal on the envelope of XV, 15 belongs to Innibi. 

In the series of tablets which are regarded as payments of the salaries {aklum cf . 
p. 29) of the head officials, the impression has been made with the seal of another; i. e. 
it does not belong to the man who received the salary mentioned in the inscription, 
but to another officer. In the documents of this class, there are no less than six tab- 
lets which contain the seal impressions of Rimfdu. They are records of salary paid 
to different individuals. This suggests the idea that he was an agent of the store- 
house, and on taking out for delivery the articles mentioned for the officials, a 
record was not only made of the payments, but he was required to leave his seal im- 
pression upon the documents held by the bursar. In XIV, 87a, a certain Rimutu 
is called rob riqqu, which may be his title. On a number of the tablets of this class, 
names do not accompany the seal impressions. In most instances it is impossible 
at the present to determine to whom they belonged. It was doubtless unnecessary 
to write the name of the delivering agent, inasmuch as the impression of his seal 
was familiar to the official of the storehouse. 

Another singular usage of the seal is found on a receipt given by one who acted 
apparently as an agent for another. In this instance the seal impression belongs to 
a third individual. The tablet (XIV, 108) reads :XFmana shipdtu a-na ""Ri-esh-ti 
ka-mi-di ""Nergal-nddin-ahe im-hur. (Date). "''""Kunukku ""Shi-gu-u-Gu-la. "15 
minas of wool Nergal-nddin-ahe has received for Reshti, the kamidi officer. (Date). 
Seal of Shigu-Gula." In this document it also seems as if Shigu-Gula was in some

15 



respect responsible for the delivery of the wool to Nergal-nddin-afie (cf. also XIV, 
1 15, in which the brother of the individual upon whom the obligation rested left his 
seal impression). On the contract XIV, 2, in addition to the two obligors a witness 
and the scribe are recorded as having sealed the tablet (cf. also XIV, 7). The docu- 
ment, however, does not bear the impressions, as it is a duplicate. 

The seal impressions, as a rule, are incomplete on these documents, owing to 
the fact that the tablets themselves are small, or the uninscribed portions upon 
which the imprint of seals could be made, were not large enough to receive the 
entire impressions. As far as I can ascertain all the seals used on these tablets were 
cylindrical in shape, and of a large size. In a good many instances only the end or 
the border of the cylinder was employed. (See Plate XIV.) In others the scribe 
took particular care to use that part of the cylinder which contained the figure. In 
many instances portions of the seals are repeated again and again over the entire 
tablet. The following observations suggest themselves after an 
examination of the impressions on these documents. 

Most of the seal imprints on these tablets show traces of what 
may be called a decorative border at each end of the cylinder. In the 
several hundred cylinders of our University Museum, there is not one 
that has this peculiarity. This seems to be a characteristic feature 
of the seals of the Cassite period. In the accompanying illustration, 
the lines of the work indicated are intaglio on the tablet, which would 
mean that they were cameo on the cylinder. This as well as other 
features show remarkable skill on the 
part of the artist. Dr. W. H. Ward has 
suggested that the seal had a thin metal cap, presum- 
ably of gold, upon which the border was cut. (See 
Plates XIV and XV, for additional illustrations of this 
feature of the seals.) 

In two of the impressions a symbol in the form of 
a maltese cross is seen. To the left of the one in No. 2, PI. XV, there is a diamond- 
shaped symbol represented. In the other (see No. 7, PI. XV) above the cross an 
animal is depicted, while below there is a design in the form of a wheel. 

The most noteworthy impression is that of a winged centaur drawing a bow 
in the direction of a date tree. Fortunately the scribe pressed the seal on all sides 
of the small tablet. By combining the different impressions the figure can be 
reasonably well restored with the exception of the upper part of the head, and 
the lower part of the fore feet. This figure shows a remarkable resemblance to 





16 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

an emblem on a boundary stone of Meli-Shipaq (Br. M. No. 101), which is the 
Sagittarius or archer, represented as a winged centaur,' with double head and double 
tail, and a scorpion beneath his front feet (cf. Boll, Sphaera p. 189). 

CHECK MARKS. 

In quite a number of these texts, particularly the larger ones, small holes, some- 
times more or less round (cf. XIV, 57, and XV, 198), and at other times semi- 
circular (cf. XIV, 22), appear before the name; occasionally in connection with the 
amount recorded (cf. XV, 163), and once on the edge of the tablet (cf. XV, 38c). 
These marks were used to check off the amounts paid, or the names of the persons 
who received what is written in connection with their names. They can properly 
be called ' ' check-marks." Owing to the character of the writing material it would 
be impossible to add from time to time additional names and amounts. The lists, 
which are mostly records of the payments of salaries or wages, were, as a rule, 
copied by the scribes from earlier lists. In some instances even the amounts 
were copied. After the tablet was written, what was actually paid was checked off 
by means of these small holes. That this is the proper explanation of these inden- 
tations is proved by the fact that in XV, 195, line 24, no "check-mark" appears. 
It is the only name in the list which is not preceded by an amount that was paid (cf . 
also XIV, 91a: 27, 28; or, XV, 180: 14, 43, and 200 IV: 31, 32, 40, 47, etc.). Also 
names which are preceded by mitu (BAD) " deceased" and halqu (HA-A) " fugitive," 
terms implying that the persons were no longer in the temple service (see Introduc- 
tion, XV, p. 7), likewise do not have " check-marks;" (cf. XV, 188 1: 15 and 200 
IV: 33). Further, the fact that in tablet XV, 200, only names before which amounts 
are not recorded, and the names which are preceded by fialqu are without these 
' ' check-marks, ' ' proves that the tablet was thus marked when something had been 
paid. Finally, that this is the proper explanation of these small holes is proved con- 
clusively by XIV, 91a, in which three lines do not have " check-marks." In each, 
the amounts which had been written before the names have been erased. 

In XV, 198, some of the holes are clear cut (cf. lines 25, 26, 29, 30, 48, to 54) but 
the rest appear to have been made after the tablet had become somewhat hardened. 
The document containing considerable data could not perhaps be verified at once. 
During the interruption it was wrapped very likely in a damp cloth in order to keep 
it soft, as signs of cloth impressions upon it are everywhere visible. 

In all probabiUty these " check-marks" were made with the upper end of the 
stylus, which was round, or semi-circular, or pointed. In the pre-Sargonic period, 

' My attention was called to this by Prof. W. ,1. Hinke of the Ursiiuis School of Theology. 



DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. 17 

when the circle had the value ten, and the semi-elliptical impression stood for one, 
it is very likely that the upper end of the stylus was round ; and that it was used to 
make the numerals. The circle was made by pressing the stylus perpendicularly 
into the soft clay; and the semi-elliptical by leaning it lengthwise, as in writing. 

THE STYLUS. 

The determination of the character of the stylus which the ancient Babylonian 
and Assyrian scribes used in writing tablets has been credited to Dr. Zehnpfund.' 
The following, however, I think, will show that his stylus is different from that used 
by the ancient scribe, because it does not make the proper impression upon the clay. 
It is described as being of box wood, ' ' one end of which is cut into an exact square. 
This end of the stylus was cut away obliquely, so that one of the corners of the end 
formed a somewhat acute angle. [See illustration of his stylus next page.] It was 
held like a pen, and the pressure was applied chiefly to the upper edge in the direction 
of the point, with a sUght inclination toward the left. ' ' In tablets written by Zehn- 
pfund it will be observed that, in making the oblique wedge, sometimes he made 
the left corner of the stylus come into contact with the clay, and sometimes the right. 
The "angular hook" ivinkelhaken, he made exactly like the former of the oblique 
wedges, with the result that in appearance, of course, it is exactly the same. Cf. 
r^^frFr^^^f^^pf^fPf^ ' To make the horizontal wedge of any length, it is neces- 
sary for him to draw the stylus over the soft clay. Dr. Zehnpfund 's desire to hold 
the instrument, as we ordinarily do a pencil or pen, doubtless led him to his con- 
clusions. With the exception of the fact that some scribes made the impression of the 
perpendicular wedge extend lightly to the right side more than to the left ; and that 
there is every variation of a ivinkelhaken, from an oblique wedge to a well defined 
' ' angular-hook, ' ' the wedges of the ancient writing are altogether different. 

The results of my own investigations with reference to the stylus were ready for 
the press, and were presented to the Oriental Club of Philadelphia more than a year 
ago. This fact is mentioned inasmuch as there has appeared recently from the pen 
of the famous excavator De Morgan {Receuil de Traraux, XXVII Liv. 3 et 4 
p. 241) results which are in some respect similar, especially as regards the upper end 
of the stylus which was doubtless used to make ' ' check-marks" in this period, and 
numbers in the early period (see the discussion above). With his conclusions, how 
ever, as regards the stylus proper, I desire to take exceptions. The instrument, he 
says, was "triangular"; which means that the angle that made the impression was

DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 



60° He doubtless has seen tablets to substantiate this. After an examination of 

hundreds of tablets at the University of Pennsylvania, from Nippur, Sippar, Baby- 
lon, Telloh, Jokha and Kappadokia I have 
found that there is only an occasional tablet 
which has been written with a stylus which 
made a wedge as narrow as that produced by 
a triangular stick. The angle in practically 
every instance is greater; hence it is incorrect 
to generalize, and say it was "triangular". 

The stylus used in most periods was a very 
simple affair. Any stick of metal, or hard 
wood, presumably reed wood {qanu, hence qan 
duppi "tablet reed" or "stylus"), which had a 
square corner, that is with an angle of 90°,' 
more or less, could be used. 

By holding it beneath the palm of the 
hand between the thumb and the middle 
finger, with the index finger on top, and 
pressing the angular corner into the soft clay, 
the impression made will be that of a perfect 
wedge. What is known as the winkelhaken 
is not simply an oblique wedge as above, 

although occasionally the impressions resemble it, but it is made in a different way. 

The stylus is simply laid over on its side, with the handle toward the right, and when 

' In order to ascertain the angle of the styhis by careful measurements of the impressions upon the tablets, I sub- 
mitted wax impressions of twenty-four inscriptions to Professor Goodspeed, Director of the Department of Physics, 
who very kindly had, under his direction, a graduate student, Mr. Geo. C. Chambers, take the measurements. His 
results from about one hundred and twenty-five measurements follow: 

"The twenty-four incsriptions represent six periods ; that is, four belong to each. The periods represented are : 1 . 
Sargon (temple archives); 2. Ur-Gur (votive cones from Telloh); 3. II Dynasty of Ur (contracts from Yokha); 4. 
First dynasty of Babylon (contracts from Nippur); 5. Cassite dynasty (temple archives); 6. Archsmenian (Mu- 
rashu documents). At least four measurements were taken for each tablet. The average measurement of the angle 
of the impressions of the Sargonic period was 93.98°; the Telloh cones, 94.88°; the Yokha tablets, 92.88°; first dy- 
nasty, 91.07°; Cassite, 87°; and Murashu, 93.94°. The average for the twenty-four tablets measured was 92.3°. 
The smallest average for any one tablet was 83.25°; and the largest 98.75°." These measurements confirm my state- 
ment that the angle of the stylus, in at least these periods,which made the impression was 90° more or less. In measur- 
ing the angle in the clay, there are several things to be taken into consideration, that make it more or less im- 
possible to get the exact angle of the stylus from the impression. For instance; there is a certain amount of elasticity 
or resistance in the clay, which when the stylus is pressed upon it, has an effect upon the impression. Also other wedges 
which are made in proximity, will tend to shift the clay, and thus decrease, more or less, the size of the angle. Then 
also there is a tendency, in a measure, to increase it by a rolling movement of the hand holding the stylus.

pressed into the soft clay, makes the desired impression. This side and angle 
marked X makes the winkelhaken. If the scribe failed to turn his stylus far enough 
the impression resembled the oblique wedge. Every variation, due to this fact, is 
found, from the oblique wedge to the perfect irinkelhaken. That this is the proper 
explanation as to how the latter was made, is proved by what follows. 





Written with Zehnpfund s stylus.

Written with square end stylus. 




Wiiileu with beveleii end stylus. 



A very marked peculiarity of the stylus in most periods, especially from the time 
of the first dynasty of Babylon, is that the top very frequently sloped to one side 
(cf . Stylus No. 4.) . In the writing upon the Sumerian tablets from Jokha and Telloh 
I have not noticed this peculiarity. When the top of the perpendicular wedge does 
not slope, e. g. Y the tvinkelhaken has a perfect right angle, e. g. <( (cf . tablet No. 
3) . A great many scribes, however, from other quarters, sloped the top so that the 



20 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

upper right corner of the impression in the clay was lower than the left, e. g. V (cf . 
the Original and No. 4.) The stylus was cut in this manner, it seems to me, so that the 
angle of the winkelhaken would be less than a right angle, e. g. <{^ ^ for when the top was 
perfectly square, the end of the "hook" spread (cf. tablet No. 3), doubtless, more 
than was desired. The angle of the winkelhaken varies according to this slope. The 
greater the bevel of the top of the stylus the smaller the angle. This fact enables 
us to prove conclusively that the above explanation as to how the winkelhaken was 
made, is correct. 

To produce long horizontal wedges for the purpose of filling out Unes, as was fre- 
quently done, it is not necessary to draw the stylus over the soft clay. By simply 
lowering the handle, it is possible to make a wedge as long as the stylus. 

A great many of these documents contain hsts. These are generally ruled. 
In all probability the Unes, especially on the smaller tablets, were made by laying 
the stylus lengthwise upon the tablet, as is done in making a long horizontal wedge. 
When more than one item was mentioned in connection with a number of names, 
they were ruled up and down, as is the case with tablets having more than one 
column (cf. Vol. XV, Nos. 199 and 200). After the heading was written, if one 
appears, and the first line was made, the perpendicular lines for the entire side of 
the tablet were ruled. The horizontal lines were made as needed, but before the 
cuneiform lines beneath were written. This is illustrated by XV, 133, which has the 
perpendicular lines drawn for the entire obverse, although only a portion of it 
was inscribed. The perpendicular lines were made with great care and precision. 
It would almost seem that a T square had been used for the large tablets. The 
horizontal lines, being ruled as needed, were not made with the same exactness; 
for example (cf. tablets XV., 188, 190 and 200), where the lines slope upwards. 

PALEOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 

Similar to the list of Neo-Babylonian signs and their variants which I published 
in Volume X of the MurashU archives, a list of the signs which appear in these texts, 
with their phonetic and ideographic values has been prepared. It will be found im- 
mediately preceding the texts. As stated in connection with the list in Volume X, 
completeness and perfection have been aimed at, but as is natural to be expected, 
this has not been altogether possible. While a great many difficulties have been sur- 
mounted, some values are only offered provisionally, and a few signs remain to be 
determined, the chief purpose of the list being to present the signs with their variants. 
To give an illustration let me refer to character No. 49 in the Sign List. It occurs 
twice in the same name Lim{Shi)-me-ga-ag{?), XV, 198:89, and C. B. M. 3480:20. 



DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. -21 

I have read the character ag{?), but feel that it is not a variant of ak(g, q), although 
it resembles the Assyrian form of that character. The sign ak (No. 10) is written in 
the usual way, even in the two texts in which the character in question occurs. It 
is perhaps to be identified with KIRRJJD, which is found in "BIL-KIRRUD (cf. my 
Vol. X of Murashu texts, page 14; and No. 222 of the Sign List of that volume). It 
doubtless is the same character found also in XIV, 157 : 3, etc., where it appears in 
connection with the sign A (No. 240). The further study of the documents of this 
period will very likely fully establish the identity of this character. 

Tablets Nos. 157 and 163, besides a number of others of this volume, were 
copied after the Sign List was made. It was my intention to insert it in Vol. XV 
which was ready for the press more than a year ago, and before about half of these 
texts were studied. Some ideograms contained in these tablets, many of which 
have the determinatives: subdtu, karpatu and im, are therefore not included in 
the list. A number of them are well known from Briinnow's List, while others 
will doubtless appear with their respective values in the new publication, Seltene 
Assyrische Ideogramme, by Dr. Bruno Meissner. 

1. The study of these documents has resulted in the discovery of two new cunei- 
form characters, with their meaning, besides additional values for several known 
signs. The first character of text XV, 199, ^-^ (cf. Sign List^o. 120), without 
another sign inserted, as far as I know, has not yet been found. For its value I 
offer lu, meaning ' ' bull. ' ' This is determined by the fact that following it in order 
are : littu rabitu, littu shattu III, alpu shattu III, littu shattu II, alpu shattu II, ittu shizbu 
(LID-GA), alpu shizbu (SUR-GA). "Large cow, three year old cow, three year old 
ox, two year old cow, two year old ox, cow heifer, ox calf. ' ' The herd will be com- 
plete if the first sign is regarded as having the meaning ' ' bull. ' ' With SMAM-GIR 
inserted, the character has such values as kisimmu, zirbabu, etc., " plant destrojang 
animal. " With LU-BIR inserted, it has the value suptru ' ' fold "or" pen. The sign 
should properly be considered in connection with the other, which has the same 
meaning. 

2. A second character, ^-^^ also hitherto unknown, with NITAQ inscribed 
(cf . Sign List No. 169) has also the same value, namely ' ' bull. " It is found in 
Usts of animals (cf. texts, XIV, 52, 137 and 163, as well as C. B. M. 11,949). The first 
(No. 52) reads: / lH (sign in question) XXXIV littu-rabitu IV littu shattu III, IV 
littu shattu II, littu shattu I, VII littu shizbu (GA), VI alpu (SUR) shizib (GA), VII 
alpu shattu V, V alpu shattu IV, V alpu shattu 1 1 1, IV alpu shattu II, naphar LXXVII 
littu alpu'"'', etc. The second inscription (No. 137) reads: [/] lH (sign in question) 
[//] littu rabitu, [II] littu shattu III, II littu shattu II, I alpu shattu IV, I alpu shattu 



22 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

///, alpu shattu II, I alpu shattu II, III ittu shizbu (GA), II alpu (SUR) shizhu, naphar 
XX littu alpu'"'^\ci. also No. 163). In both lists, all animals belonging to the cow 
and ox herd are represented if the first character is translated ' ' bull. ' ' 

Taking into consideration also similar lists of animals, such as XIV, 48, in which 
are mentioned in the following order : male sheep, large female sheep, male lambs, 
female lambs, large rams, goats, male kids, female kids ; and also taking into consid- 
eration the sheep and goats list given in Murashii, Vol. X, 130, 131 and 132, where 
complete flocks, male and female, young and old, alike are mentioned, there is every 
reason to think that a list of this kind included at least a small percentage of bulls. 
It will be noticed that in these texts, the number of animals translated ' ' bull ' ' is 
small in comparison with the other animals, which is exactly what may be expected. 
The values also of the character NIT AH which is inserted, namely zikru, "male" 
immeru zikaTu "ram," etc., further establishes this interpretation. In short for this 
character which, as far as I know has not been recognized, as well as for the other 
discussed, I do not hesitate to offer as the correct meaning, ' ' bull. ' ' The translitera- 
tion lu which is the masculine of littu " cow," is only conjectural. There is a possi- 
bility that it should be read shuru. ■-, 

3. SUR, which usually has the value hum "the young of an animal," in 
these texts refers especially to the ox {alpu) . Parallel with LID-GA ' * cow calf ' ' 
is SUR-GA ' ' ox calf" (cf. Nos. 52 and 137). In No. 183 also, SUR is used instead 
of GUD for alpu. 

4. NIN-QAR, 48:9, which takes the place of the usual SAL-ASH-QAR, if not 
a mistake of the scribe must have the value umqu ' ' female kid. ' ' In the Murashu 
texts. Vol. X. 130 and 132, parallel with urisu sihru "male kid" is uniqu the 
' ' female kid. ' ' One feels almost inclined to suggest the idea that at some time 
NIN{ = SAL+KU)-QAR and SAL-ASH-QAR were identical. 

5. For the character KAR, cf . Sign List No. 208, two new values are offered. It 
occurs in the name Sin-KAR-bi-ish-me 95: 14 (cf. also Sin-KAR-ba-i-shi-me, Nbn. 
648:9), and in the Cassite king's name Sha-KAR-ti-Shur-ia-ash (cf. 134:7, 137:26), 
etc. The writing of this ruler's name is usually, Sha-ga-rak-ti-Shu-ri-ia-ash, etc. 
KAR therefore must have the value garak (cf. also Sha-KAR-ak-ti-Shur-ia-ash 
C. B. M. 11,103), in which name KAR might be read gar, but very likely gara or 
garak{-ak) . In the other name the character must have the value kara; and the 
reading should be Sin-kara-bi-ish-me. ' ' Sin has heard my prayer. ' ' Tallqvist, 
Neubabylonisches Namenbuch, reads this name, Sin-kar-bi-ish-me ; although the 
element is repeatedly transliterated ka-ra-bi, and it is a fa'alu formation, which the 
author recognizes. Kar and kara are apocopated values of g{k)arak{g). On the 



DATED IN THE REIGNS OF CASSITE RULERS. 23 

apocope of final g in Sumerian, cf. Leander, Ueber die Sumerischen Lehnwoerter im 
Assyrischen, p. 34. For the common apocope of a final a, cf. kida, kid; kara, kar, 
etc., Brunnow, List No. 7737 and 7738, etc. This same value, i. e. garak, seems to 
have been used also in connection with GAR (No. 272). At least in two names the 
scribe used that sign for this value (cf. 140:8, and Z. A. VIII, p. 387). 

6. The sign DAQQU (cf. Sign List No. 17), according to Vokabular K. No. 77 
ff. in Delitzsch, Ass. Les.^" has the value is, si, za-a, etc. (cf. Brunnow, List No. 
5224 ff) . The sign having a phonetic value occurs a number of times in the names : 
Shagarakti-Shuriash and Bitiliash, but in this connection it must have the value 
ia; as these names end in ia-ash and ia-shu respectively, and not in i-ash and i-shu 
(cf. also the name Ba-bi-ia, XIV, 95: 11). I therefore propose ia as an additional 
value for this sign. It occurred to me that the scribe in writing the Vokabular may 
have failed to add an additional wedge to the character, read si, which would then 
be ia. Through the kindness of Dr. L. W. King of the British Museum I learn that 
the reading si on the tablet is quite certain. The idea suggested itself to me also 
that the characters read za-a might perhaps be a-a. Dr. King informs me that 
while the characters have been filled up with gypsum, which has not been very 
carefully removed, he thinks the sign is za and not a-a. 

7. In the Neo-Babylonian Contract literature the name of an officer which 
occurs frequently is written SHIM with GAR inserted. Tallqvist placed the char- 
acter among those of uncertain reading (cf. Die Sprache der Contrade Nabu-naHd, 
p. 147). This officer figures very prominently in these texts. For the different 
variants of the character see Sign List No. 121. For the reading of the sign I pro- 
pose riqqu. The character SHIM has long since been read iHqqu (cf. Delitzsch 
Ass. Les. No. 140). Thureau Dangin in his Ecriture Cuneiforme, gives besides 
SHIM (No. 393), its gunu (No. 395); with GAR inserted (No. 399), and a gunu of 
it (No. 400). The variants of the sign in question in these texts seem to have the 
characteristics of all four. In the Neo-Babylonian period an officer ''rab riq-qi is 
frequently mentioned (cf. Nbn. 317:7, 10, etc.). In Nbn. 1038:6, RIK"' occurs. 
These officers figure in the payrolls of the temple attaches (cf. 12^ shiqlu a-na 
RIK^'^'sha Bit-Belit Sippara, Nbn. 604; 10). In Cyr. 332: 19 an officer riq-qi-ii-tu 
appears; and in Nbn. 864: 13, RIK with GAR inserted is followed by ii-tu, show- 
ing that the plural formation is the same. In Nbn. 317, dates are paid for the ser- 
vice of fifty men, among whom are the ''qi-i-pi and ''rab riq-qi. In Nbn. 976 the 
officers RIK^' with GAR inserted, also figure in the payment for service made to 
different officers among whom is the '•qi-i-pi. While there does not seem to be con- 
clusive evidence that the reading I'iqqu for the sign in question is absolutely certain, 
it seems to me highly probable that such is the case. 



24 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

8. The character GUD (Sign List No. 123) which occurs in the name read 
Bel-mu-she-tiq{1) in Vol. XV (cf. also C. B. M. 3473, etc.) in the absence of any 
other value I have read tiq{?), simply because of the frequency of the occurrence 
of this element in names of other periods (cf. also zib, however, in mushezib). 

9. For the character LA in the name Sin-LA-bilti (cf. Vols. XIV and XV), I 
propose the new value nasdhu "to pull out." The name Sin-u-suh-bilti, "Sin 
deliver the offspring, ' ' occurs during the same reign in which the above is found. 
LA has the value hasbu (cf . Briinnow and Meissner List) . Cf . 3sn in Hebrew means 
' ' to hew out, ' ' which is similar in meaning to nasahu. The name might be read 
Sin-hdsibu-bilti ' ' Sin delivers offspring, ' ' but in view of the fact that Sin-usuh- 
bilti occurs in the same period, and that the sign seems to have a similar meaning 
in hasabu, I have read the names as identical, and propose for LA the new value 
nasdthu. 

10. The character BAL (cf . the variant of No. 5 in Sign List) has together with 
BUL (No. 4a Sign List), the value pashdru. The name Ilu-ippashra (BAL-ra) 
C. B. M. 3644, is written with BUL-ra in C. B. M. 3647. This conclusion seems 
to be strengthened by the fact that these two signs have other values in common, 
(cf. hul, pul and dabdbu). 

11. The character KIT, LIL (No. 104 Sign List) has besides the value sah and 
sih, the value suh, which as far as I know, has not been found (cf. the name Sin- 
u-suh-bil-ti, XIV, 151, 22, 28, with Sin-u-su-uh-bil-ti, 19:11). 

TRANSLATIONS OF SELECTED TEXTS. 
Following the plan of the previous volumes issued in this series in giving the 
transliteration and translation of a number of selected texts, the following are 
offered, in addition to those translated in the Introduction in connection with the 
discussion of the contents of these documents, and also in the critical notes in the 
following pages, in order to illustrate their general character. The translation of 
thirty additional documents from these archives will be found in Vol. XV. In 
view of the fact that a large number of the texts contain lists of personal names, 
all of which are to be found in the Concordance of Names, and also that a great 
many of the tablets are similar in character it will scarcely be necessary at any 
time to translate all completely.

p. 13).

Annotations: No. 3, L. 4. In these texts qdt without a preposition preceding is equivalent to irm eli, ina 
niufibi, or ina pdni. The individual whose name follows is the recipient; cf. 48: 16. Ina qdt means "out of the hand" 
or "from." L. 5. Ki-i qdt, literally "like the hand of," means that the person whose name follows is responsible 
for the debt or obligation, although contracted by another who receives the items mentioned in the document. It 
is parallel to the expressions found in the MurashU Business Documents: aki shipirtum, Vol. IX, 75: 6; akt anidtu{-tu) 
32a: 3; aki shatdri, 12: 5; akl shipishtum, 32: 1; and the frequently occurring sha qdt. These expressions are equi- 
valent to "by the order of," meaning that the person whose name follows acts as guarantor of the transaction. 

Annotations: No. 4, L. 3. NIM following buhddu, seems to be equivalent to GA= shizbu, which follows 
liUu and alpu, cf. No. 53, and also buhddu shi-zi-ib. Pinches P. S. B. A., 1896, p. 252., cf. LU-NIM, gukkallu "Mut- 
terlamm." L. 5. UD being parallel with enzu 1 have transliterated ^cnu, although pisA "the white (ones)," namely 
sheep may be preferable. L. 18. SA has the value yiddtu "sinew", cf. Hebrew TJ. In Murashu, X, 131: 20 
gi-da-a-tu is a variant reading in the same phrase of other texts where SA is used, cf. Murashu, X, 132: 18.

No. 93, Kadashman-Turgu, year 6th, lyar 16th. 

Contents : An official receives grain for the purpose of paying maintenance

Annotations: No. 7, L. i. Shindu{SU-SHE-fU) was perhaps a certain kind of wood. In the above text 
it is a-na «>"da/<i; and in 74: 2, it is a-na ifirshu. The meaning "ornament" given by Muss-Arnolt, Ass. Die. p. 1072 
is incorrect. The transliteration in Z. A. Ill, p. .320 reads: sW-in-rfu, which is tran.slated "Schmuck," but s/iinrfu is a 
mistake as the text reads: si-in-du. In the Neo-Babylonian texts, shindu is usually given to the nangaru "carpenter," 
cf. Nbk. 222: 3, 128: 2, 126: 4; Nbn. 416: 4, etc. In text No. 74 it is also given to a nangaru. In V. R. 27, 6e.f 
shindu is followed by shibu and liru which mean "border" and "covering" respectively. The term refers doubtless 
to some kind of worked or artistic wood which was sold by weight. 

Annotations: No. 8, L. 4. KU-QAR is the term throughout these texts which is used in connection with 
the payment of salaries, especially of the riqqu and the KA-ZID-DA officers, cf. Translation No. 16; XIV, 56a: 7, 8 
etc. The heading of XV, 153, reads: SHE-BAR GISH-BAR-GAL sha a-na KU-QAR riqqu u KA-ZID-DA a-na 
Nippuril'i ^Bu-ra-liuish-shu-u' Barley for the full tax which Bura^u brought to Nippur for the salary of the riqqu 
and the KA-ZID-DA officers." In 92: 4 a scribe receives KU-QAR. This term at the same time had a wider usage 
In the above text and in XV, 77, a miller is paid KU-QAR for grinding flour. In XV, 21, it is paid as hire for an irri- 
gating machine, etc. In the Neo-Babylonian period pappasu "payment" or "compensation," is usually mentioned 
as payment made to the riqqu officers; cf. Nbn. 129: 4; 219: 1 ; 864: 3, etc. It seems to be quite probable that pap- 
pasu, which is rarely used in these texts (cf. XV, 44: 23), is the Semitic reading for KU-QAR. In the Harran Census 
the term KU-QAR follows ?enc, which Johns (D. B. pp. 65 and 18) suggests is an epithet for sheep.

Three gur, seventeen qa of flour out of the six qa tax as salary for Sin-muballi 
of the town hrt, (for) the month Kislev, from the 19th day, until the 30th. Seal 
of Rimutum. 

Annotations: No. 9, L. 5. SHE-BA or ipru which means "maintenance" or "substance," is what was paid 
for the general maintenance of the city and temple, cf. ana ipru Nippurki ii DUr-Kuri-Ga'uu, XV, 26: 3; or ana ipru 
aha ardi ikalli "for maintenance of the temple servant," XV, 84. The ordinary usage of the term in these texts is in 
connection with the payments made to the average craftsman, or temple attache. The distinction we make between 
salary and wages they seem to have made. The terms aklum and KU-QAR, mean "salary," while ipiu would 
correspond to the term "wages." Generally it is nmch smaller than the amount paid under the term KU-QAR. 
In XIV, 56a, it is also paid to the riqqu and the KA-ZID-DA officer, as well as lo the soldier. In XIV, 167: 27, the 
entry, ipru ii kurmat atpe would seem to mean that it was for the hire and board of oxen. 

Annotations: No. 10, L. 2. Aklum, hterally "food," is the term used for the salary of the head officials of 
the storehouse, such as Innannu, and Martuku. A great many small tablets record the payment of these salaries. On 
quite a numbar of these records, the seal impression of another is found, see p. 14. There is also a wider usage of the 
term of. XIV, 133, where ginii "offering" and nigii "sacrifice" are summed up as aklum. In XIV, 167: 1, aklum is 
given to an individual to make offerings to shrines (e. g. parakku Bel); to pay wages {ipru); to give kurmalu to the 
temple, for oxen, sheep, etc., and to pay for kargalU, and for the making of ships (a-na e-pish iffelippi). The term 
bargain occurs quite frequently in these texts. In XV, 109, the payment: // gur kurmat alpu is paid an individual 
who gets also / gur fiargalu. In XV, 1.56, liargalu, together with qtme, head columns of payments. In XV, 46, the 
payment LXXII qa IB-KID kip&lu is preceded by / gur IB-KID {largalu. Cf. also C. B. M. 3362: CL qa qtme 
i-na-Ubhi fjar-ga-lu-u sha Bit mSi-H 96 qa SHE-BAR i-na Bit mln-na-ni GISH-BAR VI qa i-na qdt mMar-tu-ku M&r- 
mfdb-a-shab-shu KA-ZID-D.\ ma-hi-ir. The passages would indicate that liargalit was some kind of a commodity or 
product. In XV, 52: 26, it follows payments of KU-QAR "salary," with which it is summed up under that term

the king, when he was in absentia. (Date). 

In C. B. M. 3102, the heading reads: Qtme GISH-BAR Vlqasha i-na libbi kar-ga-li-i sha Diir-Nushu''i "iHabd-sha- 
NINIB a-na KIN-SIO nadnu(-nu). "Flour of the 6 9a tax out of the fearjo/if from Dur-Nusku which Rabd-sha- 
NINIB has paid for KIN-SIG. (Cf. also XIV, 158). Cf. the similar phrase XIV, 57: She'um GISH-BAR VI qa sha 
i-na libbi te-li-ti sha shattu Xllkan-^ Na-zi-Mu-ru-ut-ta-ash i-na Za-rat-IMki a-na ishshakkufoll nadnu{-nu). Cf. also 
XV, 106: She' um sha i-na libbi mash-shar-ti i-na aluKal-bi-iaki i-na GISH-BAR-GAL nadnu(-nu). In these passages 
telitu "crops" or "tax," and mashshartu "stipend" take the place of fiargalii. Is the word to be associated with the 
Hebrew Vjin "locust," a delicacy in the ancient as well as in the modern periods of the history of the East? It 
seems, however, to have also a general meaning something like "revenue" or "tax." 

Annotations: No. ii, L. 2. In connection with these brief records, many of which do not contain a verb, 
a-sha-bu (cf. above), and la a-sha-bu (cf. XV, 64), occur. The commodities were delivered very likely, as a rule, 
at the official's residence, to which fact, doubtless, ashdbu refers. When they were disposed of otherwise, the term 
la ashdbu may have been used. Another explanation might be that the goods were delivered when the official was in 
presentia, or in absentia.

Oct. 1905, p. 815f., ASH-A-NA{vfhich is the writing usually found in the late period for ASH-AN-NA, see Sign List 
in my Murashu texts, Vol. X, cf. however, ASH-A-AN , XV, 168: 22), has the values ku-na-sh-u, liu-(u-ut-tum and 
di-shi-ib-tafi-fiu. In these texts butultu, but not with t, is found several times in texts dealing with ASH-AN-NA, 
cf. XIV, 77: / gur XXX qa ASH-AN-NA GISH-BAR VI qa sha i-na libbi sha ^'"Za-rat-DCir- Gu-la a-na bu-tu-ut-li Ja- 
ash-la-ma a-na A-BI nadnu{-nu). Cf. also XV, 53: 11: XC qa qime ASH-AN-NA GISH-BAR-GAL sha bit ku-nu-

DA i-na qdt "iMar-tu-ki ma-hi-ir (Date). In view of these passages it is reasonable to suggest that the bufuttum 
of the syllabary, published by Pinches, is to be regarded as identical with our butlutum. Cf. also bu-fu-ut-tum , 
Murashu, B. E. Vol. IX., 59: 1.

34 DOCUMENTS FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES 

The first six columns give the payments for the first six months. In the sev- 
enth, the total (naphar) for the first half }'ear is given. In the fourteenth column 
the amount for the second half year is recorded. The sum total for the year is found 
in the fifteenth column. In the sixteenth, at the top of which is the word a-wi- 
lu-lum ' ' men, ' ' the stage in life of the individual is indicated, as well as the relation 
of the recipient to the head of the family. KAL{zikaru) means ' ' man " or " adult ;" 
SAL, or the feminine determinative, ' ' woman;" KAL-TUR, or hatulu, ' ' adult son;" 
SAL-TUR{perhaps batultu) "adult daughter;" KAL-TUR-TUR, "adult grandson:" 
TUR-GAB "boy"; SAL-TUR-GAB "girl." In this column are found also the 
words: BAD {mihi) "dead," and HA-A (halqu) "fugitive". No amounts are 
given in connection with the names before which these terms are written. On all 
these prefixes cf. Vol. XV, p. 6. At the top of the last column, M U-B I -im^ means 
"their (his) name(s)." 

In a number of instances the office represented by the individual follows the 
name. It will be noticed that different members of the same family are mentioned. 
Idinanni-Shamash (line 5), for example is followed by a wife, daughter, two sons and 
a grandson. In line 8, following the name is written ultu '"^'^"TashrUu harrdnu, 
' ' from Tishri, road". Nothing was paid the individual from that month on. The 
conclusion is that the phrase means that from that time the person was on a mission ; 
or perhaps had leave of absence. He may have been sent on an errand in the interest 
of the temple. Others, cf. line 13, 43, etc., were absent during the entire year. 

The translation of the line written beneath the names of the months, and re- 
ferring to the first six, is : " That which was received from Uundbi. ' ' In connection 
with the second half is written : ' ' That which was received from the gate (storehouse) 
from the grain of the town Zarat-IM, also dates." 

In the 47th line the totals are given. In the first column, the amount paid in 
Nisan, viz. five gur eighteen qa. In the seventh column, the total for the six months 
is given; in the fourteenth, the total for the second half of the year; and in the 
fifteenth column, the sum total. The number 38 in the next column which con- 
tains the prefixes to the names, refers to the actual number in the service. There 
are in all forty-six names in the list, but eight are dead, or are fugitives, which leaves 

' Radau, Early Babylonian History, p. 329 translates SHE-GISH-BAR-GAL MU-BI-IM "which was expended 
yearly." MU-BI^shwni-sliu "his name." The im may be explained as the Semitic mimmation. In C. B. M. No. 
3528, MU-IM-BI occurs in the same position. This might be read shum imhi. I am inclined to think, however, that 
this is to be explained otherwise, and that MU-BI-im means literally "his name," and that when more than one fol- 
lows it should be translated "their names." This would imply that they pronounced thv; word mribim (cf. AZAG- 
DIM-im XV, 128:4). Cf., however, MU-BI-IM, I. R. 5, No. XVI, 11:11, where IM seems to mean "self." In 
No. 89:3, ZA-is-ium takes the place of the usual MU-BI-im. Cf. MU-BI in C. B. M. 1365, time of Ammi

the number thirty-eight. Beneath the total for the first half of the year is written: 
"That which is out of the seed, which was given yunabi." In connection with 
the total for the second half is written : ' ' That which is from the seed of the gate 
(storehouse) from the grain of the town Zarat-IM, and dates from Tdmtu." The 
last two lines read : ' ' Grain of the six qa tax which is from the month Nisan, of 
the thirteenth year, unto Adar, of the thirteenth year of Nazi-Mandtash; from the 
seed which was given into the hand of IJunahi] from the grain of the gate (store 
house): out of the seed from Zarat-IM; and dates from Tamtu." ijunabi doubt- 
less was the bursar or paymaster, and the document is a record of his disbursements 
as well as the sources from which the revenues were received.

Annotations: No. i6, L. 6. Kurmatu "food" or "feed," is usually paid the farmer (XI V, ,56a), the .soldier 
(XIV, 56a: ), and for the maintenance of horses, cattle, and birds (XIV 167: 21). Hecause of the phonetic complement 
ta 1 have transliterated imeru{KUR-RA)pt-ta = ur&la. Note that in text No. 62, which is similar to this document 
kurku (KUR-GI-IJU) takes the place of these animals. In Jeremias, Cu^iuslafel t'on Sippar Col. V: 8, kurmat is paid 
the priest. L. 7. RlmiHum is another term under which payments are made. In No. XIV, 60, the riqqu and KA- 
ZID-DA receive KU-QAR; the horses, kurmat, the temple attaches, ipru; and a weaver rimutum. XIV, 62 is similar, 
but a different weaver receives the rimiitun. In relation to the other terms rimutum is about half as much as the 
KU-QAR, and double the amount of ipru. In XIV, 61, an official gets aklum, and a pili'i "keeper" gets rimtitum. 
In XIV, 79, a potter is p.iid ipru, while a gardsner is paid the same amount of rimUtwn. In XV, 19, KU-MUN(7) 
and KU-QAR are paid in the same list with the same amount of rimul-u-n to a mngaru and a k'isiiun. In XIV, 61 
it is paid a pitii, alongside of a payment of rent, with which it is summed up as afc.'u 71. Cf. also XIV, 167. Rimti- 
tum, doubtless means a "grant", perhaps originally a "gratuity." Cf. the name Nabu-aku-rimanni, "Nabii grant 
me a brother." Professor Hinke has arrived at the same conclusion in studying boundary stones. He has called 
my attention to a pa.ssage in O. B. I., No. 149, whi -h reads: XXII gur 'heuziru^ . . a-di II >heuzi ru ri-mul "'Sin-bti-ildnt 
"22 gur seedfield. . . . including 2 gur seedfield, the grant of Sin-bel-ildni.

This text contains payments made to the same persons, with a few exceptions, 
as in the previous text. The difference is that only the heads of families are men- 
tioned. Instead of giving the name of each member of the family, as in the pre- 
vious text, the word qinni "family" precedes the name of the pater or mater }a- 
milias. After two of the names the following is written : "'*M6tt adi '"''^"Tashritu 
' ' from the month Ab until Tishri. ' ' In the light of the previous text, this does 
not mean literally three months, but very likely one and one half months, which 
is determined by a comparison of the amounts paid in this with those of the pre- 
vious text. The total (naphar) is six qa less than what the separate amounts equal; 
hence the scribe has made a mistake in his calculations.

Translation : 

One pasture ox Iqisha-Bel, son of JJashma-Jiarba, received from Belanu, son of 
Ibba-amel-uballit for farming; and he broke his leg; whereupon Belanu thus spoke 
to Iqisha-Bel: An ox bring that I may plant in the field, (so that) a planting thou 
shalt not cause me to miss. Iqisha-Bel thus spoke to Belanu : An ox in the month 
Ab I will give thee. Iqisha-Bel in Ab did not give the ox to Belanu: wherefore, 
Iqisha-Bel shall make good to Belanu the crop of the field.

were made on the left edge of the tablet.
