Abstract: ABSTRACT: The Egibi family archive from Babylon is, with its approximately 2,000 inscribed clay tablets, the largest of its kind among the private archives from first-millennium BCE Babylonia. They were written between 606–486 BCE.Today the tablets are dispersed in museums around the world, the majority being housed at the British Museum in London and the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin. The Israel Museum in Jerusalem holds one Egibi tablet in its collections. In the present article the tablet is published for the first time, and its place within the wider Egibi archive is discussed in full.
