Chapter Summary

It is not an easy task to single out sanga's daughters because different people were homonymous with the sangas, a fact that did not prevent them from having daughters. For instance, there are no less than seven women, probably all of them nadiatum, who had a father called Warad-Sîn. One of them, a šat-Aja, is even attested in six texts. The earliest one is Damiqtum, daughter of the first sanga šamaš-tappašu, attested under Apil-Sîn. The second one, attested under Sîn-muballi_, is Awat-Aja, daughter of Warad-Sîn, šamaštappašu's grandson. To these two one can add Lamassi, whose seal states that she is a daughter of a Sîn-ennam. In view of the rarity of the father's name and the fact that she always appears in witness lists together with either Damiqtum or Awat-Aja, she is included in this chapter. Finally, tentatively šat-šamaš is added for similar reasons.
