Abstract

This contribution offers the publication of a fragmentary Neo-Assyrian private legal docu- ment, most likely a conveyance of land and people, from the forti ed site of Tell Sitak in the province of Sulaymaniyah, Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq. The site is situated in the Assyrian province of Mazamua (or Zamua) and can perhaps be identi ed with the fortress of Larbusa. It offers further support for the identi cation of the ancient city of Arrakdi with Sulaymaniyah.
