Here are some very interesting cuneiform tablets written in various ancient languages.
The first group comes from a collection in the UK and have been examined and translated by Professor Lambert ex of the University of Birmingham.
This first one is extremely interesting and rather rare for several reasons; that it's a court case and that it has multiple ring seals.
The inscribed edges:
The inscribed and stamped edge:
The ring seal impressions of Shamash-ittannu, of Iddina-Bel, the lion and boar and the cylinder seal impression of Nana-iddina.
They are oriented in different directions but I have shown the photographs with the seal impression oriented correctly.
And lastly, the flamingo seal ring impression and the inscription for Bel-uballit.
This small adminstrative document is special because it's Neo Babylonian and in a remarkably fine hand.
You obtain an idea how remarkably precise and small the cuneiform here is, when you realise how small this tablet is. Compare it with the one above:
