The mortuary stele with Sam'alian inscription from ördekburnu near Zincirli

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

For more than a century, the alphabetic inscription on the early-first-millennium Ördekburnu stele has defied decipherment. In 1915, Lidzbarski labeled the language of the hardly legible text non-Semitic, and most specialists have followed suit. We present a new collation of the stele, with a drawing, and a partial transliteration and translation of the Sam'alian text.
