Western Asiatic Pictographic Tablet Fragment

4th-3rd century BC

A tablet fragment bearing pictographic characters to both faces, the reverse more worn. 49 grams, 72mm (2 7/8"). Fair condition. [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.
