Chapter Summary

As is the case in nearly all aspects of Mesopotamian culture, the study of Babylonian astrology is still very much a matter of Quellenforschung. The text edited in this chapter has long been available in a published copy, TCL 6 13. It belongs to the late period of Babylonian astrology, and in its combination of public (derivative of Enūma Anu Enlil) and personal astrology, TCL 6 13 reflects a variety of traditional forms and "doctrines," and presents much that is not familiar to us from Enūma Anu Enlil alone. TCL 6 13 is part of a 2-col. tablet from Seleucid Uruk, containing 29 lines on one side and 25 on the other with a number of paragraphs written at a 90° angle, and related texts. Some elements of TCL 6 13 relate to the practice of nativities, showing parallels in both nativity omens and horoscopes.

Keywords: Babylonian astrology; TCL 6 13
