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.

Proceedings of the International Congress held at Ghent University, December 14-17, 2009.
In December 2009, an international congress was held at Ghent University in order to investigate, exactly 20 years after the 36th RAI “Mésopotamie et Elam”, the present state of our knowledge of the Elamite and Susean society from archaeological, philological, historical and geographical points of view. The multidisciplinary character of this congress illustrates the present state of research in the socio-economic, historical and political developments of the Suso-Elamite region from prehistoric times until the great Persian Empire. Because of its strategically important location between the Mesopotamian alluvial plain and the Iranian highlands and its particular interest as point of contact between civilizations, Susa and Elam were of utmost importance for the history of the ancient Near East in general.
