Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book titled Life at the Bottom of Babylonian Society contains the table presenting the sex and age classification of attested occupations in Middle Babylonian Rosters. These documents presume a basic understanding of the socio-economic environment of Kassite Babylonia and the administrative bureaucracy of Nippur and provide little orientation for the researcher who attempts to understand the structure of the system. But it examines what little evidence is provided for understanding the organization and supervision of the work force, the tasks performed, the problems of worker flight and imprisonment, the origins of the workers, and the civil status of the laboring population.

Keywords:Babylonian society; laboring population; Nippur
