A Fragment of an Assyrian King List (VAT 12058)


Schroeder, KAV 18.

This fragmentary text from Aššur is preserved on only one face of a clay tablet, only the lower left corner of which is still partly visible. The preserved portion of the text begins with Erišum I and ends with Narām-Sîn. Only the traces of two columns remain, with royal names on the left column and non-royal names (possibly a number of ummânū) on the right. The first column is identical to the corresponding portion of the Assyrian King List, although it has a different format (with no filiation nor regnal years).
