TRANSLATION

10 gurri of grain, the property of the Sungod, unto

Addu-yatin, the head-man (and)
3. the second man of the city Hindanu.

In the month Tammuz, at the rate of 1 gur 36 ka of grain,

by the measure of the Sungod,
G. lie shah pay (it back) into the granaries.

Witnesses, Bêl-ibnî,

and the scribe, Rêmut-Nabû,
12. son of Bêl-esur. Sippar,

month Tebet, day 9th, accession-year,
Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.

The name Addu-yatin (line 2), who seems to have been cliief of Hindanu
(line 3), implies that tins city was situated where Hadad was worshipped and where
a west-Semitic language was spoken. It testifies therefore to the extent of Babylonian
influence. Addu-yatin was seemingly stopping at Sippara for the period indicated
(Tebet to Tammuz — 6 months).

The accession-year of Nebuchadnezzar may be regarded as 604 b. C.

This, the last tablet of the sélection, is a contract apparently recording tho sen-
ding away of a heifer to be weaned.
