Radner, Karen (1. December 2015): A Neo-Assyrian Slave Sale Contract of 725 BC from the Peshdar Plain and the Location of the Palace Herald’s Province. In: Zeitschrift für Assyriologie und vorderasiatische Archäologie, Vol. 105, No. 2: pp. 192-197


This paper presents a first edition of a new clay tablet in Neo-Assyrian language and cuneiform script. The fragmentary text was found in 2013 at the site of Qalat-i Dinka in the Peshdar Plain, Sulaymaniyah Province, Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq. It documents the sale of a slave woman in the year 725 BC, when the area was part of the Assyrian Empire and quite possible of the Province of the Palace Herald.
