Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a brief study of a small economic text in the Ugaritic language that has in the past been presented backside first. The primary intention behind the study is the simple setting right of the object so that the text as preserved may at least be read in the order intended by the scribe. The chapter presents the measurements, epigraphic features, find spot, editio princeps, and textual remarks of the tablet. Reading the text in the proper order coupled with the plausible restorations of the number formulae has the cumulative effect, however, of revealing the account of an extraordinary amount of wealth. The original text probably consisted, of a simple list of four commodities of which the last two were gold and silver.

Keywords:scribe; Ugaritic language; Ugaritic Text RS 2.[031]
