This study analyses five aspects of the approximately 450 published Mesopotamian Incantations dating to the period from 2500 to 1500 BC: the incantations' development during this perios; their functions and particular type of suffering, illness; the verbal techniques they use to request or represent helpful divine intervention towards those ends; their accompanying ritual; the information they provide about the ultimate cause of such suffering, that is harmful divine intervention.

The work ends by summarising this analysis and arguing that it fails to support the conventional classification of the incantations as magical rather than religious.


Studies in Third Millenium Sumerian and Akkadian Personal Names

1993 pp.XII-328




The Sumerian and Akkadian Personal Names of the third Millennium show that the notion of a "personal god", or "personal gods" exist from the earliest periods of Mesopotamian history.

Although allusions figure more prominently in the Akkadian onomasticon than in the Sumerian, the idea is already well-rooted in both traditions at a very early date and presumably antedates extant written sources.

Préface de Jean Yoyotte

“Studia Pohl: Series Marior” 15

1990, pp. XXII-282




Un Docteur en Chirurgie Dentaire, pratiquant à l’heure actuelle cet art, mais aussi longuement formé à la philologie égyptienne et aux disciplines égyptologiques, a voulu dépasser la simple reprise de l’histoire de la dentisterie antique et des souffrances dentaires que pouvaient éprouver les pharaons et leurs sujets.

Le développement sur la spécialité dentaire, littéralement attestée à l’Ancien Empire, entraîne l’auteur à reconsidérer la structure et la hiérarchie du corps médical égyptien. Ce mémoire prend place dans le renouvellement présent de l’historie de la médicine et des conceptions biologiques, un retour aux contextes intellectuel, techniques, social de chaque époque considérée en collant aux données de la philologie et de l’archéologie.


Neo-Assyrian Legal Documents in the Kouyunjik Collection of the British Museum

“Studia Pohl: Series Marior” 14

1988, pp. I-LIV + 526




This volume is a critical edition of 426 Neo-Assyrian legal documents from the Kouyunjik Collection of the British Museum.

It includes those texts which have been identified as belonging to an individual (archive-holder) and thus forming a dossier or archive. 406 tablets are ascribed in this edition to 192 names.

The majority of documents edited in this book are conveyance texts and may be divided into two categories: the sale of immovable and the sale of movable property. The sale of movable property is almost exclusively represented in this edition by the sale of persons. The majority of contracts are loan documents, while juridical documents - usually court decisions - are quite rare among the Kouyunjik texts.

Sumerian Grammar in Babylonian Theory

E-mail Stampa PDF

Black Jeremy A.

“Studia Pohl: Series Marior” 12

Second Revised Edition 20041 - pp. I-XII + 168




All the works studied in this volume have been published before, with the exception of a few new fragmentary texts in the revised appendices 5.3 and 5.4.

The present detailed investigation takes it as excuse that while these works are often caled as witnesses in support of various philological arguments, no unified attempt to evaluate them in their context as the products of an ancient scholarly discipline has so far appeared.

The Author tries to show that current analyses of the Sumerian forms into tenses or ‘aspects’ are based on a misunderstanding of the way the Babylonians set some of their tenses (or aspects or whatever they are) against Sumerian forms in these grammatical texts.

Then the Author describes the various ways in which the choice of forms may operate in Sumerian, and finally makes a suggestion as to how these might have developed.
