In keeping with the general format of nineteenth-century Assyriological publications, this study provides an abundance of information on the texts under consideration. Here, the correspondence between the famous Babylonian king Hammurabi and the governor of Larsa, Sin-Idinnam, is examined in detail. Nagel also includes commentary, beginning with grammatical and syntactical issues. Next he turns to lexical issues, beginning with individual words, compound words, and ideograms. Friedrich Delitzsch also adds further remarks to Nagel’s adequate analysis of these historically significant texts.

In keeping with the general format of nineteenth-century Assyriological publications, this study provides an abundance of information on the texts under consideration. Here, the correspondence between the famous Babylonian king Hammurabi and the governor of Larsa, Sin-Idinnam, is examined in detail. After an initial introduction, Nagel provides a transliteration and translation of 46 letters of this period. Despite this formidable amount of information, the author also includes commentary, beginning with grammatical and syntactical issues. Next he turns to lexical issues, beginning with individual words, compound words, and ideograms. Taking advantage of his editorial role, Friedrich Delitzsch also adds further remarks to Nagel’s adequate analysis of these historically significant texts. Together these two brief studies provide virtually all that was known of this correspondence at the time, and thus provide a vibrant insight into the life of Hammurabi’s relationships to lesser rulers.

Gottfried Johannes Samuel Nagel (1876–1944) was a Lutheran pastor in Germany. He occasionally wrote on various topics of Assyriology.
