More Mathematical Cuneiform Texts of Group 6 from Late Old Babylonian Sippar
Book chapter, 2016

In Ch. IV of Neugebauer and Sachs, MCT (1945), A. Goetze divided published Old Babylonian mathematical texts without known provenance into 6 different groups with respect to their Akkadian orthography. Goetze’s classification was later refined and extended by J. Høyrup in LWS (2002), Ch. IX. Groups 5 and 6 were classified by Goetze as “northern”.
