Onomastic-epigraphic notes

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

After interpreting two biblical anthroponyms with their cognates, I analyse forty other West Semitic (mostly Aramaic) anthroponyms in Neo-Assyrian transcription from Dūr-Katlimmu on the lower Habur. Thereafter, I identify an Akkadian term in Aramaic script from the same site. Interestingly enough, this common Akkadian term renders an equivalent in the Neo-Assyrian dialect of Akkadian. The last section offers new readings and interpretations of a recently published ostracon from Jerusalem datable to the end of the Second Temple period.
