Venus Tablets of Ammisaduga

21 Feb 2014

Email request via the contact address on the web page has come in concerning the Venus Tablets of Ammisaduga. Is there a reliable translation anywhere? Leroy kindly pointed to articles in Kronos that are available on the Catastrophism CD and made the point they are perhaps just a set of tables rather than something like a chronicle or annal. Daniel Gracely has asked if the link to Henry Zemel's web site is reliable - go to www.caeno.org/_Eponym/pdf/Reiner_AmmizadugaBPO1975.pdf and if this doesn't work just www.caeno.org/_Eponym/ ... and play around with the texts and authors and go down to Ammizaduga and other relevant articles available. It seems to suggest the tables appear as part of a chronicle, and a late chronicle at that, dating the tables much earlier to the reign of Ammisaduga. Incidentally, this is the web site of Henry Zemel.
