This paper offers the complete publication of 10 previously unpublished Rim-Anum texts kept at the British Museum. Like the texts already published in Rositani 2003 and Rositani 2009, those edited here come from the blt astrt,the "house of prisoners". All the documents here published are dated to the reign of Rim-Anum, more precisely between the 20 months from the month X of the first year to the XII month of the second year of the reign of Rim-Anum. With a quadrangular shape, all these texts were dealing with the deliveries of flour to the bit asiri. All the operations are checked by Ahu-waqar, Nabi-Sin or both. The majority of the texts have the seal of Sin-Shemi, overseer of the prisoners of war. The publication of this small group of documents, of which photographies are available on archibab.fr, is for the author the occasion for return on the study of the chronology of Rim-Anum and the role of Ahu-waqar, Nabi-Sin and Sin-Shemi.

Abstract

This paper offers the complete publication of 10 previously unpublished Rim-Anum texts kept at the British Museum. Like the texts already published in Rositani 2003 and Rositani 2009, those edited here come from the blt astrt,the "house of prisoners". All the documents here published are dated to the reign of Rim-Anum, more precisely between the 20 months from the month X of the first year to the XII month of the second year of the reign of Rim-Anum. With a quadrangular shape, all these texts were dealing with the deliveries of flour to the bit asiri. All the operations are checked by Ahu-waqar, Nabi-Sin or both. The majority of the texts have the seal of Sin-Shemi, overseer of the prisoners of war. The publication of this small group of documents, of which photographies are available on archibab.fr, is for the author the occasion for return on the study of the chronology of Rim-Anum and the role of Ahu-waqar, Nabi-Sin and Sin-Shemi.
