The scribe Ibbi-Enlil is attested in many Sippar texts and in most cases his name has been erroneously read as Ibbi-Sin. Ibbi-Enlil was not just a scribe, but a “very high-ranking official”.

Abstract

The scribe Ibbi-Enlil is attested in many Sippar texts and in most cases his name has been erroneously read as Ibbi-Sin. Ibbi-Enlil was not just a scribe, but a “very high-ranking official”. He was in office during the years 4th to 18th of the Samsu-ditana’s reign, which could be very useful as a chronological element. The date of OLA 21 39 is lost; in this text i-bi-dEN.LÍL occurs as dub.sar, dumu dEN.ZU-mu-ša-lim. I should like to suggest, therefore, that OLA 21 39 is to be dated between the 4th and the 18th year of Samsu-ditana's reign.
