Goetze’s Compendium from Old Babylonian Shaduppûm and Two Catalog Texts from Old Babylonian Susa
Book chapter, 2016

The three tablets IM 52916 (in the present chapter, Sec. 10.1), and IM 52685 + IM 52304 (in Sec. 10.2) were published and correctly interpreted by Goetze in Sumer 7 (1951). Goetze called them together “a mathematical compendium from Tell Harmal”. The three tablets are very poorly preserved.
