Clay Cone Fragments from Assur

There are numerous clay cone fragments from Ashur which cannot be identified with any particular king. The vast majority of clay cone fragments from Ashur which can be identified belong to Shalmaneser III [/riao/theassyrianempire883745bc/shalmaneseriii/index.html] (see the introduction to text no. 42). These are texts nos. 1027-1093. Most of these, viz. texts nos. 1031- 1093, are too insignificant to warrant edition or special comment and therefore they have been presented in chart form.

1027

The inscription on this clay cone fragment (VA Ass 2130 = Ass 10771) has a geographical description of conquests similar in style to text no. 39. Rost, FuB 22 no. 94.

All that is preserved of this inscription on a clay cone fragment (Ass 18494 = Ass ph 5863) is [... tukultĪ]-nin-urta MAN KIŠ [...] "[... Tukultl]-Ninurta, king of the universe." Thus the text might be ascribed to Tukultī-Ninurta II [/riao/thekingdomofassyria1114884bc/tukultininurtaii/index.html], Ashurnasirpal II [/riao/theassyrianempire883745bc/ashurnasirpalii/index.html], or Shalmaneser III [/riao/theassyrianempire883745bc/shalmaneseriii/index.html].

1094-95

Two glazed brick fragments from Nineveh have the remains of scenes accompanied by inscriptions. On each fragment of the inscription, only the sign URU "city" is preserved. There is no particular reason to assign them to Shalmaneser III [/riao/theassyrianempire883745bc/shalmaneseriii/index.html], although this general time period seems appropriate. Thompson, AAA 18 (1931) pl. XXX no. 1 and pl. XXXII no. 1. Cf. Borger, HKL i p. 52b and Schramm, EAK 2 p. 96.

This is another fragment of a glazed brick (BM 90495 = 1979-12-20, 275) with traces of two or three signs. Walker suggested that it was "possibly Ashurnasirpal II." Walker, CBI p. 129.

Numerous stone fragments with traces of cuneiform signs and scenes in relief were found at Ashur. These may be pieces of an obelisk. Unger suggested an identification with Shalmaneser III [/riao/theassyrianempire883745bc/shalmaneseriii/index.html] but there is no compelling reason to believe this. Not enough is preserved to warrant an edition.
