Old Babylonian Cuneiform Tablet

2nd millennium BC

A rectangular clay tablet bearing dense rows of cuneiform text to both faces and all for edges. 66 grams, 55mm (2 1/4"). Very fine condition.

Provenance
Specialised collection of cuneiform texts, the property of a London gentleman and housed in London before 1992.
Thence by descent to family members.
Examined by Professor Wilfrid George Lambert FBA (1926-2011), historian, archaeologist, and specialist in Assyriology and Near Eastern archaeology, in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
This small collection is exceptional for the variety of types, including some very rare and well preserved examples.
