Table of Contents


Progress toward the full publication of the Nuzi archives in the Harvard Semitic Museum has moved forward again with the publication of this volume. Dr. Morrison's study of the Eastern Archives combines both archaeological and philological data bringing order to the organization of the Eastern Archives and showing how they might have been grouped originally when excavated. She suggests, furthermore, additional avenues of research to follow in the analysis of other segments of the Nuzi archives.

The second part of the late E. R. Lacheman's Excavations at Nuzi, volume 9 is also published in this volume. Texts selected for publication were chosen to coordinate with Morrison's study. In addition to a catalog of the texts, over 240 pages of hand copies are presented, many for the first time.

"For many decades E.R. Lacheman systematically made fine hand copies of Nuzi tablets, for which he received little credit during his lifetime. Many were left unpublished when he died in 1982, and fortunately two American scholars have joined in completing this task. Hand copies of 161 tablets are given, checked against the originals, with a catalogue. They have been selected by the archives from which they come, and the first part of the book makes detailed studies of the various business families, relating the tablets to the find spots."--W.G. Lambert in SOTS Booklist

"This volume is another step toward the full publication of the Nuzi cuneiform archives in the Harvard Semitic Museum. These archives found in the eastern area of Nuzi belonged to individuals: however, they do not constitute 'family archives' that is, the repository of all the tablets owned by family members. Typically, these documents relate to property, transactions like the exchange of fields, inheritance, lawsuits, and commercial activity of some sort. All the people represented in the archives are fairly wealthy. Morrison refers to Shukriya, a man who will includes statements about 'household gods'; concerning these goods, one of his sons went to court."--Internationale Zeitschriftenschau fur Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete vol. 39: 1992/1993
