100

A mace head made of lapis lazuli found at Nimrud is engraved with an inscription that surely belonged to Ashurnasirpal II, although his name is broken off. The text is a dedication most probably to the god Ea (the mace is called ḫaltappû in the text, an instrument associated with Ea and used by exorcists to cast out demons).

Two pieces of white alabaster from Nimrud are engraved with the same fragmentary dedicatory text. On each piece the inscription is engraved between two registers of scenes carved in relief. Fragments of a similar vase with scenes in relief and a text dedicated to Nergal have been found at Tarbiṣu; see, Curtis and Grayson, Iraqq 44 (1992), pp. 87-94 and pl. III; this is a private dedication of the late ninth-century BC.

102

This text is preserved on six stone slabs, each measuring approximately 44 cm. The exemplars are not exactly the same, as "MAN GAL-ú/e MAN dan-nu" does not always appear after each royal name. As we are told in the engraving, these slabs were originally located in the courtyard of a palace of Aššurnasirpal II. It is unclear, however, from which palace they came. Grayson argues that the most likely provenance of the objects is Calah, but it is also possible that they come from Nineveh.

The following text is preserved on the reverse of multiple stone slabs, measuring approximately 87 x 78 cm. The objects have not been removed from their original location at the North-West Palace at Calah. They served to cover the door sockets in an entrance to part of the palace, cited in the text itself as the "Second House/Wing/Room." It is not clear exactly what this designation meant, but it seems to imply a division between this area and that of the main quarters of the palace.

Multiple stone facing slabs bear the following engraving. These slabs were used to cover the door sockets in an entrance to Aššurnasirpal II's North-West Palace at Calah. This text was engraved on the obverse of the slabs while text no. 103 was engraved on the reverse. The text gives a brief titulary of the monarch in question. For more information on the exact location of these slabs, see the introduction to text no. 103. See also text no. 11 for a similar label.

A duck weight bears the following brief label. It was found in the North-West Palace and Calah and is currently housed in the Iraq Museum. In addition to giving a brief genealogy of Aššurnasirpal II, the text informs us that the object weighs ten minas.

109

This text is preserved on multiple glazed clay cones. As the inscription informs us, these cones were originally located in the temple of the divine Kidmuru in Calah, located near the North-West Palace (see text no. 38 for more on this temple). However, it is not entirely certain that all of the cone fragments belong to the same text, as Grayson indicates.

110

This text is painted on a single fragment of clay cone, measuring c. 2.4 x 5.4 cm. The cone is glazed and coloured and was found at Calah. The text mentions the temple of the divine Sibitti. Although no royal name is preserved, Aššurnasirpal II is known from text nos. 30 (line 57) and 131 to have constructed a shrine to the Sibitti at Calah. It seems highly likely, therefore, that this text belongs to his reign.

This text is one of several short texts from Nineveh preserved on a vast number of clay cone fragments. The other texts are nos. 12, 13, 15, 16, and 18. Each of the texts contain the name of this monarch, a brief genealogy, and various epithets. The present text is one of the longer ones, as it also contains a statement alluding to Aššurnasirpal II's building work on the Ištar temple at Nineveh. No complete copy of the text has been preserved, and thus this text is pieced together from the existing fragments.

This short text is preserved on multiple fragments of clay cone, all of which were found at Nineveh. As in text no. 111 [http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/riao/Q004565/], this inscription mentions Aššurnasirpal II's work on the Ištar temple. For more information on the clay cones of this monarch found at Nineveh, see the introduction to text no. 111. No complete copy of the text has been preserved, and thus this text is pieced together from the existing fragments.

This short text is preserved on four fragments of clay cone, found at Ashur. The exemplars are identical save a few minor variations. It seems likely that the cones were originally located in the Sîn-Šamaš temple (for more, see the introduction to text no. 67).
