Abstract

A dossier of two Old Babylonian litigation records is explained as a creditor's attempts to claim penal damages arising from breach of a contract to supply goods and his two debtors' manœuvres to avoid immediate payment. The interpretation also reaffirms the interpretation of the disputed term mitḫārum as an additional equal amount.
