If a City is Set on a Height. The Akkadian omen series šumma ālu ina mēlê šakin, Tablets 1-53

If a City is Set on a Height. The Akkadian omen series šumma ālu ina mēlê šakin
Sally Freedman
I started working on the Šumma Alu omens as a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. My dissertation was a general overview of the series, and I completed text editions of Tablets 1-40 in If a City Is Set on a Height: The Akkadian Omen Series Šumma Alu ina Mele Šakin, volumes 1 and 2, published by the University of Pennsylvania Museum (1998 and 2006).
It is uncertain whether further volumes will appear in a conventional book format. However, I am posting text editions of the reconstructed Tablets on academia.edu, so that the work I’ve done on the remaining Alu Tablets will be available for anyone who is interested. Images of almost all the original texts are online, either on the British Museum website or in the database CDLI (Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative).
