Updates to The Prosopography of the Neo-Assyrian Empire

Updates to The Prosopography of the Neo-Assyrian Empire
Since the first fascile of PNA was published in 1998, new editions of Neo-Assyrian texts have been published and study of the existing material has progressed. Inevitably there are a fair number of new names, as well as new attestations of previously known names, to be added to the corpus. In some cases the readings of names already published in PNA have to be revised; similarly, the biographical details for certain individuals can be updated in the light of recent research. These developments reflect a healthy interest in and engagement with the field of Neo-Assyrian studies, of course, but they make it quite difficult to keep a printed Prosopography up-to-date. To this end, I have been compiling a database of addenda and corrigenda to PNA.
The provisional list made available here represents the material processed so far in the course of collecting updates. It contains skeleton entries, without full biographical details. Etymological interpretations are not included, and the names have not been reviewed by PNA’s linguistic consultants. Please be aware that this is a work in progress; further entries will be added and existing entries may well be modified as editorial work progresses.

These lists use the Ungkam font created by Steve Tinney and available at:
