Abstract

The eight-column rock-relief inscription of Iddi(n)-Sîn, king of Simurrum, exhibited in the Israel Museum since 1971, is copied, edited, translated and philologically commented on. An unpublished reverential cylinder-seal, mentioning Iddi(n)-Sîn and his royal heir Anzabazuna, is published as well. The historical and geographical situation in the Zagros foothills during the early Old-Babylonian period is discussed at length. U. Seidl presents the relief, focusing on its iconography and the dating.
