Babylonian, c. 1700 BC
Acc #: 96.68, James Logie Memorial Collection
From the Collection of Dr HD Broadhead
A narrow tablet inscribed on both sides with lines of Babylonian cuneiform. This is another administrative text listing the names of individuals granted plots of land of between 1 bur (buru) and 1 gan totalling 9 bur and 3 iku. An iku equals one quarter acre, or one thirty-sixth of a bur. The tablet is undated but probably comes from around 1700 BC.
