Babylonian Cuneiform Texts


As well as the Babylonian Chronicles and the Astronomical Diaries, over 1,500 legal, scholarly and religious cuneiform documents have survived from the Hellenistic period. The following list contains all the documents which can be dated exactly or approximately within this period, and which are available online in English translation. To provide a chronological framework, the names of the Macedonian/Seleucid rulers are shown within the list, at the point where they first appear in the texts.

Most of the texts have been catalogued by CDLI ( Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative ), and the CDLI number ( starting with P ) is shown in the first column of each line. Where this is not available, either the museum number or the Qcat number is displayed.   Click on the number at the start of each line to go to the translation; if the second column is flagged with a *, this will take you a list of links rather than directly to the translation. For more information about the translations, see below.

Unless otherwise stated, all the cuneiform tablets were found in Uruk.   There is a good general introduction to the texts from Uruk by Ph.Clancier, "Cuneiform Culture's Last Guardians" ( academia.edu ).
