YOU ARE HERE>> REAL or FAKE>Fake cuneiform tablets, section 3, page 3

 

Someone asked me about this from eBay.

 



There have been quite a few tablets offered for sale with labels in Arabic script attached to them.  Some sellers say that these are "excavation labels".

 

 



These are all quite poorly made fakes.

 



I was interested to know what these scraps of writing actually said...

With thanks from Daryl and also Rob:




Seems they are little scraps cut out of Arab language newspapers.

There are many to be seen online. These below from the CDLI database.
