Novotny, Jamie and Lentini, Giulia (2019): Babylonian Topographical Texts online. München: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


Babylonian Topographical Texts online (BTTo) currently includes fully searchable and richly annotated (lemmatized) editions of some of the most important texts published in the books A.R. George, Babylonian Topographical Texts (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta 40; Leuven: Peeters, 1992) and A.R. George, House Most High: The Temples of Ancient Mesopotamia (Mesopotamian Civilizations 5; Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 1993): e.g., Tintir = Babylon — the most important cuneiform source for the topography of Babylon, which lists and explains the sacred names of the city, its temples, and its other important topographical features and whose purpose was to glorify Babylon as Babylonia's pre-eminent religious center — and the Canonical Temple List — which lists over 600 temples and their divine owners and a composition known from three clay tablets discovered in the library of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal (669-ca. 631 BC).
