Title: The Murašû Aramaic Epigraphs: Paleographic Notes
Authors: Cussini, Eleonora
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: The Aramaic epigraphs written on cuneiform tables belonging to the Murašû archive of Nippur (fifth century B.C.), the largest extant body of texts of this kind, provide significant data for the study of Official Aramaic. In particular, for analysis of the development of Aramaic script and its relation to other types of script used on contemporary and earlier clay tablets from Mesopotamia and Syria. The present study, based on new copies of the epigraphs, offers a revised palaegraphic tool, and contributes to the general discussion on the issue of the development of Aramaic script on clay tablets during the Late-Babylonian and Achaemenian periods
