OLD BABYLONIAN CUNEIFORM TABLET
EARLY 2ND MILLENNIUM B.C.
3 in. (104 grams, 77 mm).

Pillow-shaped in form with cuneiform text in dense rows to one face. [No Reserve]

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.
