Cuneiform tablets

Dimensions :-

Circular tablet :-
Diameter -6.5 cm / 2-1/2 inches

On offer here is an unusual cuneiform disc tablet that is smooth and well defined. Original tablets were incised in moist clay, then fired or left to harden in the sun but some were cut into a variety of stones.

Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone, it has an aged patina with a light polish.

The disc has very precise characters of text which suggests it was made in a royal workshop. This is a much more complex and ordered use of ancient writing of a type used in later Sumerian culture as well as Babylonian and Assyrian. A likely translation for this rare object would be a temple foundation prayer or a document of it's dedication ritual.

*As each item is handmade, slight colour variations may occur.
