Assyrian and Babylonian Chronicles

A. K. Grayson

This invaluable collection of Mesopotamian texts of the type labeled “chronicles” is divided into two sections: studies and texts. Each study elucidates essential chronicle historical and source material. Each text is presented with transliteration, translation, and commentary. Indexes, line drawings, and plates complete this volume. The book has long been considered a model of its type, and Eisenbrauns is happy to make it available again.
