abstract: th. e. balke bietet einen katalog der altsumerischen namen. auch die prosopografischen merkmale, vor allem die berufliche und die administrative klassifizierung der personen, sind einbezogen worden. diese klassifizierung erlaubt in der regel die gesicherte identifizierung und unterscheidung von personen gleichen namens und eine verknüpfung der zahlreichen kurzformen mit den eigentlichen vollformen der namen. die grundlage des namenkatalogs bilden die in den ca. 1.850 altsumerischen verwaltungs- und rechtsurkunden des 25.–24. jh. v. chr. aus lagas (al-hibā) und ĝirsu (tellō) verzeichneten personennamen und die einbindung der personen in den wirtschaftskomplex des é-mí „haus(halt) der ‚frau‘ (= herrschergemahlin)“ und des é-ba-ú „tempel von ba’u“. berücksichtigt worden sind neben den im wirtschaftsarchiv dokumentierten personennamen sowohl die personennamen der präsargonischen weihinschriften aus lagas als auch die der ältesten rechtsurkunden.

abstract: there are, perhaps, no more contentious issues within the study of achaemenid persia than those surrounding its religion(s) and religious iconography. owing to the role that fire plays in zoroastrian beliefs in later periods in iran, almost any discussion of the subject of achaemenid religion will eventually turn to the identification of sacred fire, fire temples, fire worship, and fire altars in the archaeological, epigraphic, and literary records.

the goals of this study are to introduce a new corpus of visual imagery concerning religious ritual in the achaemenid period and to explore the significance of this visual language for our understanding of ritual traditions emerging within the heart of the empire at its most critical formative period, the reign of darius i. this study seeks also to use the persepolitan glyptic evidence as a springboard to re-visit the most famous “fire altar” depicted in achaemenid art, that on the tomb relief of darius i at naqš-e rostam. the glyptic images assembled in this study are the most numerous, the most visually complex, and the best dated and contextualized evidence that currently exists for the study of fire in ritual, and religious ritual more broadly, in early achaemenid iran. this study is also an initial step in the development of a religious topography for the zone encompassing persepolis and naqš-e rostam, a topography that includes both images and the built environment.

abstract: despite significant advances in annual chronology, the old assyrian trade fundamentally lacked a regime of time at the level of the merchant’s commercial and personal activities. in this book, stratford sets out to recapture time through narrative, drawing on the relationship between the two described by the philosopher paul ricouer. investigating a possible case of revenge leads to weaving together more than a hundred mostly undated documents to form a narrative within the course of a single year of vengeance, including trade disruptions, illnesses, and commerce. this process demonstrates relationships between document and material context, and time and narrative. along the way, old assyrian commercial time and its tempos become more clear, leading to descriptions of the scale of the trade and the nature of old assyrian archives as they have survived. ultimately, the assyrians involved appear as the earliest historical individuals in world history. the treatment of šalim-aḫum’s apparent revenge comprises a practicuum in historical interpretation in the ancient world of interest to practitioners and theoreticians of both the ancient world and world history.

abstract: during the third millennium bc, the huge geographical area stretching between the mediterranean in the west and the indus valley in the east witnessed the rise of a commercial network of unmatched proportions and intensity, within which the persian gulf for long periods functioned as a central node. in this book, laursen and steinkeller examine the nature of cultural and commercial contacts between babylonia, the gulf region, and indus civilization. focusing on the third and early second millennia bc, and using both archaeological data and the evidence of ancient written sources, their study offers an up-to-date synthetic picture of the history of interactions across this vast region. in addition to giving detailed characterizations and evaluations of contacts in various periods, the book also treats a number of important related issues, such as the presence of amorites in the gulf (in particular, their role in the rise of the tilmun center on bahrain island); the alleged existence of meluhhan commercial outposts in babylonia; and the role that the seaport of gu’abba played in babylonia’s interactions with the gulf region and southeastern iran (table of content).

abstract: in this book reinhard pirngruber provides a full reassessment of the economic structures and market performance in late achaemenid and seleucid babylonia. his approach is informed by the theoretical insights of new institutional economics and draws heavily on archival cuneiform documents as well as providing the first exhaustive contextualisation of the price data contained in the babylonian astronomical diaries. historical information gleaned from the accounts of both babylonian scholars and greek authors shows the impact of imperial politics on prices in form of exogenous shocks affecting supply and demand. attention is also paid to the amount of money in circulation. moreover, the use of regression analysis in modelling historical events breaks new ground in ancient near eastern studies and gives new impetus to the use of modern economic theory. the book explains the theoretical and statistical methods used so that it is accessible to the full range of historians (table of content).

abstract: in early mesopotamian divination literature: its organizational framework and generative and paradigmatic characteristics, abraham winitzer provides a detailed study of the akkadian old babylonian (ca. 2000-1600 bc) omen collections stemming from extispicy, the most significant mesopotamian divination technique for most of that civilization’s history. paying close attention to these texts’ organizational structure, winitzer details the mechanics responsible for their origins and development, and highlights key characteristics of a conceptual framework that helped reconfigure mesopotamian divination into a literature in line with significant, new forms of literary expression from the same time. this literature, winitzer concludes, represents an early form of scientific reasoning that began to appreciate the centrality of texts and textual interpretation in this civilization’s production, organization, and conception of knowledge (table of content).

abstract: in ancient traditions, assyria was the first world empire in a series that continued with persia, macedonia, and rome. after rome, we imagine the series bifurcating into a western trajectory (from charlemagne to napoleon and the third reich) and an oriental trajectory (from the parthians and sasanians to the abbasids until the modern caliphate). assyria, often overlooked or slighted by modern studies of empire, still maintains our interest because it provides an example of the simple form of empire and imperialism, before subsequent developments resulted in structures of greater complexity.

most important among basic features of empire is the imperial mission the mandate given by the gods or god to the emperor to extend, through conquest or persuasion, annexation or hegemony, the only legitimate power of the central state to the entire (known) world. this accomplishment can only be ideological, since in practice no empire, ancient or modern, could actually conquer the world. nonetheless, ancient empires could come closer to the target, because their known world, the mental map of their oikoumene, was limited to their close surroundings. assyria, by bringing the most populated and civilized countries of its time (surrounded by mountains, seas, deserts) into submission came close to fulfilling its mission. in our modern, western perspective, however, the term empire is usually applied to alien and despotic (mainly oriental) polities, while we in the west prefer to belong to more democratic alliances.

the intent is twofold: (1) to better understand assyria through comparison with later empires, and (2) to underscore the relevance of the assyrian model and its influence on later history. although the first intention profits ancient historians, the second goal is addressed to modern and contemporary historians, who too often ignore (or at least disregard) the long historical background lying behind more recent developments. the world in general, in the present climate of globalization, deserves to be better informed about pre-modern and non-western trajectories of world history (table of content).
