Publisher Description

Records Of The Past, 2nd Series, Vol. III

Edited by A. H. Sayce


Records of the Past 2:2 has more Egyptian material than the first, including the Inscription of Uni, the Adventures of Sinuhit, and the Legend of the Expulsion of the Hyksos. Also of interest on the Egyptian side are some of the Tel El-Amarna letters, Babylonian cuneiform tablets found in Upper Egypt, copies of correspondence between Amenophis III and rulers throughout the ancient Near East. From Mesopotamia comes the brutal Inscription of Assur-natsir-pal, the Moabite Stone and an Akkadian Hymn to the Setting Sun, plus detailed king lists and chronologies. If you are curious about Assyrian, but found cuneiform off-putting, the Specimens of Assyrian Correspondence has complete transliterations of three short texts in the footnotes. Even the most mundane of these inscriptions are bejeweled with the names of gods and goddesses, some of them little-known local deities. Another very interesting entry in this series.
