Neo-Assyrian Scribal Practices: The Editorial History of Ashurbanipal’s Prism F Inscription

Ashurbanipal’s Prism F inscription contains numerous variant traditions among its individual exemplars. In an article published in 1977, M. Cogan classified the more significant variants as independent recensions of the inscription. However, a reexamination of his seven recensional classes shows that there is in fact only one major recension of this inscription besides the main version of the text, with a few exemplars preserving two additional variant traditions in one episode. Furthermore, with respect to Prism F’s compositional history, an examination of this major recension suggests that it may have been the first version of the Prism F inscription that was then edited to become the main version of the text.
