The Late Babylonian Commodity Price Lists

Alice Louise Slotsky, and Ronald Wallenfels

This volume grew out of a collaborative study of the eighteen mostly unpublished Late Babylonian commodity price-only tablets in the British Museum. The purpose of this project was two-fold. First, to prepare text editions of all the preserved tablets in the corpus; second, to pursue the perplexing matter of if and/or how these tablets and their market values were related to the prodigious arsenal of ostensibly similar price quotations in the Astronomical Diaries.
