Sargon asserts that he was preceded by 330 Assyrian kings.--p. 205Records of the Past 2:4 has more Egyptian material than the first, including the Inscription of Uni, the Adventures of Sinuhit, and the Legend of the Expulsion of the Hyksos. Also ofMoreSargon asserts that he was preceded by 330 Assyrian kings.--p. 205Records of the Past 2:4 has more Egyptian material than the first, including the Inscription of Uni, the Adventures of Sinuhit, and the Legend of the Expulsion of the Hyksos. Also of interest on the Egyptian side are some of the Tel El-Amarna letters, Babylonian cuneiform tablets found in Upper Egypt, copies of correspondence between Amenophis III and rulers throughout the ancient Near East. From Mesopotamia comes the brutal Inscription of Assur-natsir-pal, the Moabite Stone and an Akkadian Hymn to the Setting Sun, plus detailed king lists and chronologies. If you are curious about Assyrian, but found cuneiform off-putting, the Specimens of Assyrian Correspondence has complete transliterations of three short texts in the footnotes. Even the most mundane of these inscriptions are bejeweled with the names of gods and goddesses, some of them little-known local deities. Another very interesting entry in this 4 volume series.Table of ContentsI. INSCRIPTION OF UNI (OF THE SIXTH DYNASTY). By Prof. MASPERO, Member of the InstituteII.
