Abstract

Forty-one inscribed bricks were found at Nimrud/Kalhu, during the excavations led by Paolo Fiorina between 1987 and 1989 for the Centro Ricerche Archeologiche e Scavi di Torino. They have been discovered in part (twenty-four bricks) during the first survey of the site and partly (seventeen bricks) during the excavations at Fort Shalmaneser, the ēkal mašārti or Review Palace of the city. All the bricks are dated to the reign of Shalmaneser III (858-824 B.C.) with the exception of one text, which belongs to the time of Assurnasirpal II (883-859 B.C.), and other two, whose dating is at the moment not deductible.
