The tablets shown in the photos in this section, placed here between 2006 and 2009, are in private collections in various countries and are not offered for sale.

Most, apart from just a few which are in my own collection, were sent to me many years ago to take better photographs to aid reading of them. I placed these photos  here  to illustrate the types of tablet which were on the market at this time when the cuneiform reading service was launched. We very much encourage collectors to have their tablets read and to share them with academic resources. I thought that by showing how very interesting such tablets can be, this would encourage collectors to have their tablets read.



315. (N)



A Babylonian legal document still within the envelope it was sealed into by no less than ten witnesses in the last month of the 32nd year of Rim-Sin, King of Larsa in Babylonia circa 1791 BC.

The imprints of the seals are extremely feint but some lettering can be just seen in an oblique light.



5/26. (N)

A late Babylonian cuneiform tablet which mentions the name of a town not previously known.
