Abstract and Keywords
This article describes the Old Babylonia corpus based on evidence from tablets of schools and scholars. It charts both well-established and yet untrodden paths through the realm of Old Babylonian literary and scholarly tablets and evaluates the entire corpus of Old Babylonian literary and learning regardless of language. It highlights the need to conduct more research to elaborate the nature and extent of the relationships between Akkadian and Sumerian corpora, and the mechanics of the transfer of knowledge within southern Babylonia.
