Abstract: Two anti-witchcraft prescriptions from the late second millennium BCE are edited for the first time: a fragment from Ḫattuša (HT 75 = BM 108557) and a previously unpublished fragment from Nippur (CBS 11059). The piece from Ḫattuša joins an important therapeutic/prophylactic compilation that has first-millennium duplicates from Assur and Kalḫu, while the manuscript from Nippur, which has duplicates from Ḫattuša and Nineveh, illustrates the early stabilization of a ritual tradition that is later formulated as a measure against a type of witchcraft called zikurudû , “throat-cutting” Abbreviations not found in the Reallexikon der Assyriologie und Vorderasiatischen Archäologie include: CMAwR 1 = Abusch/Schwemer 2011; CMAwR 2 = Abusch/Schwemer forthcoming; SANER = Studies in Ancient Near Eastern Records; STMAC = Science, Technology, and Medicine in Ancient Cultures. The Trustees of the British Museum and Steve Tinney and Grant Frame, curators of the Babylonian Section, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, kindly gave permission to publish tablets in their collections. I am also very grateful to Daniel Schwemer, Tzvi Abusch, and the editors/referees of ZA, all of whom provided valuable comments and suggestions. .
