about this item

Archi collects 50 of his essays on the city of Ebla in northern Syria and its society and people during the third millennium BC as attested in roughly 5.000 cuneiform tablets found there written in the earliest known Semitic language. His topics include Eblaite in its geographic and historical context, the role of women in the society of Ebla, considerations of a delivery of spearheads from Ebla, Ursa'um from the point of view of Ebla, the cultic journey of the god Hadabal, and jewels for the ladies of Ebla.
