Abstract

MHET II 6 894 is a large administrative document dating from the Late Old Babylonian period. The text lists fields situated in the territory of Sippar-Amnānum, which were assigned to the soldiers of Sippar. At first sight, the text only enumerates surfaces, irrigation districts and persons. However, a thorough analysis of this list reveals a well organised mechanism, which sheds more light on the redistribution of land to soldiers in Late Old Babylonian Sippar-Amnānum. MHET II 6 894 est un long document administratif datant de la période paléobabylonienne tardive. Il fournit une liste des terrains situés dans le territoire de Sippar-Amnānum, qui ont été attribués aux militaires sippariotes. Au premier examen, le texte n'est qu'une énumération de surfaces, de secteurs d'irrigation et de noms de personnes. Cependant, une analyse approfondie de cette liste révèle l'existence d'un mécanisme bien organisé qui éclaire le système de la redistribution des terres aux militaires dans la période paléobabylonienne tardive à Sippar-Amnānum.
