A Middle Assyrian letter from Tell Taban, Tab T05A-134, was written when Ilī-padâ, a well-known figure in the very late 13th and the early 12th centuries B. C., had become ill while staying in Adališḫu, a town in the Land of Māri located in the Middle Habur region. While the letter focuses primarily on medicine for Ilī-padâ, it also deals with extispicy and hemerology. Furthermore, the letter provides new insights into the Middle Assyrian terms for ‘propitious day’ and ‘extispicy’.
