Seller: dub-sar (30) 100%, Location: Strakonice, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 264468428317 A hand-written copy of a Neo-Babylonian/Late Babylonian (origin not certain) incantation against the cause of toothache and gum disease (a worm) with a recipe and a medical procedure. The original clay tablet, which is also a copy of an older tablet, dates back to the 1st millennium BC and is deposited in the British Museum in London. The incantation is hand written in Neo-Babylonian and Sumerian, in the Neo-Babylonian cuneiform script. It is not a cast, it is copied the way tablets were copied in ancient Mesopotamia - by hand. The colophon at the end of the text contains information written in Sumerian that it is a copy written by me, as was the custom in Mesopotamia and as is written on the original tablet - there is a name of the scribe who copied some older tablet with this text, stating that the original tablet was a very old one (thus respectable in the eyes of Babylonians). I state the names of both of the scribes of the original tablets in the colophon. The tablet is made of clay and was written by hand and fired in 2018. Size: 7,0 cm x 5,2 cm x 1,7 cm = 2.8'' x 2.0'' x 0.7'' (width x height x thickness) The tablet is packed in a neat black paper box padded with wood wool. I will enclose a paper with transliteration, transcription, translation into English, and with some information about the text, language, script etc. Condition: New - 2018, Material: Clay, Year: 2018
