Clay tablet

Rectangular clay tablets were used to record administrative information.

This tablet is a record of the delivery of 8 gin (about 64 g) of gold by Lu-Ninshubur to the palace.

 

They were also used for personal letters and contracts.

This tablet was sent by Ili-bitim, it reads,

15 shekels of silver. From Ili-bitim to Ili-dan, the son of Shugat of Ura'im, and to Dudu.

Buy me two slaves. They should be young and have no beard. Send them to me with my messenger.

Shallala, his sister, and Abu-damiq, his mother, and Nani now live in Subartu.
