Publication History

Published Online:

BM 113929 and VAT 13392 provide evidence for the existence of the prebend of temple scribe in seventh-century Babylonia. This article presents editions of these two documents and discusses evidence from texts composed under the Neo-Babylonian and Achaemenid dynasties that would indicate that this prebend continued to exist in these later periods.
