Chapter Summary

Twenty-five years have passed since the authors started their research on the Old- Babylonian Sippar tablets stored in the museum of the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. These tablets, with their specific look, style, terminology, shape and numerous sealings were coined "Quasi-Hüllentafeln" by the authors' German colleague and friend Claus Wilcke. In addition to this Sippar tablet from Philadelphia, the authors also provide autographies of four other Quasi-Hüllentafeln from Sippar-Amnanum which has been referred to in several studies. A common feature of these Quasi-Hüllentafeln is that they all refer to problems related to old titles of property which, after a certain time period are requested to be transferred from the old proprietor to the new when that property was sold, inherited, divided, given as part of a marriage agreement, at the occasion of an adoption etc.

Keywords: Philadelphia; Quasi-Hüllentafeln; Sippar tablets; Sippar-Amnanum
