Introduction

This small and badly broken tablet from Assur contains, on its obverse, a series of protases from the menological series Iqqur īpuš. Several explanations are appended to the protases in a second column. These explanations are badly damaged, but they appear to be identical to those found in other excerpts from the series Iqqur īpuš, e.g. K.98+ (CCP 3.8.1.A), MLC 2627 (CCP 3.8.1.B), and BM 50634 (CCP 3.8.1.E).

The reverse of the tablet, however, contains a series of protases of the Šumma Ālu type. Since the topics of the omens seem to be very heterogeneous, it has been proposed that, rather than an excerpt from that series, the present tablet would represent a catalogue of incipits (thus e.g. CAD A/1 231a).

The same combination of commented Iqqur īpuš protases and Šumma Ālu-type omens can be found in CTN 4 49 (CCP 3.5.u4).

 

The tablet (VAT 10801) was collated in the Vorderasiatisches Museum by Eckart Frahm in August 2016.
