Das Archiv des Bel-Remanni
1999 (PIHANS vol. 86)
VIII, 297 pp. softcover
The book presents a comprehensive treatment of a family archive originating from Neo-Babylonian Sippar complete with editions and handcopies of the texts. Among the subjects treated in the commentary are the prebendary system of the Ebabbar temple, various dues and taxes, and agriculture.
The archive is shown to exhibit strong traces of the activity of apprentice scribes; it can in fact be considered to be a 'school archive,' the setting of the 'school' being the archive owner's family. It is only part of a larger group, the other part of which is an archive of medical texts (also consisting mostly of school tablets) studied by Irving Finkel.
