The Borsippa project is a joint effort by the ERC Starting Grant project BABYLON [] and the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires []. The BABYLON project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (grant agreement no. 241118). The Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires has been funded by the Academy of Finland (decision nos. 312051, 336673, and 352747).

The texts have been adapted from Caroline Waerzeggers, The Ezida Temple of Borsippa: Priesthood, Cult, Archives (Achaemenid History 15), 2010. The lemmatization of the text corpus was started by Bastian Still and Caroline Waerzeggers and completed by Tero Alstola, Ellie Bennett, Céline Debourse, Julia Giessler, and Evelien Vanderstraeten. Linda Leinonen and Senja Salmi assisted in creating the text metadata.

We wish to thank the Oracc steering committee and other developers of Oracc for providing us with the digital platform to publish this annotated text corpus.
