The Babylonian tamitu texts are a corpus of questions addressed to the sun-god Shamash and the storm-god Adad together. expert diviners have been hired to place the questions with the right rites and to formulate the wording accurately, because the basically resolution will be "yes" or "no." hence the questions needed to comprise a close exposition of the problem, and so they open up intimate glances of items now not in a different way on hand. Kings ask whether or not they may still adopt a definite crusade, laying out a close course of action. on the different finish of the dimensions, a guy desires to be aware of even if his spouse is telling him the reality. All pills are of first millennium B.C. date, even though a number of the questions date from the second one millennium B.C. Scribes copied out inquiries to function versions for later use.

during this quantity W.G. Lambert has collected jointly all of the identified fabric, together with fifty four pills and fragments no longer formerly released. All are given in cuneiform reproduction, transliteration, translation, with notes and an advent. by way of some distance the larger a part of this fabric has no longer been edited before.
