Chapter Summary

Unlike the decision records, however, conclusions do not end with the authorities' decision. Instead, they continue with some record pertaining to the subject of the case after the ruling. The formulation of conclusions does not follow an identifiable outline. In the "Royal Judges" style decision records, for example, the judges appear not only when their names are recorded at the end of the texts; their actions as judges are recorded within the text, as well. The memoranda derive their name from the words tahsistu lā lā mašê ("Memorandum, not to be forgotten") that occur at the end of most of them. The presentation of the document typology began by positing that each text-type has its own legal function. The identification of the settlements, the text-type to be discussed here, deviates from this methodological axiom.
