Greater Mesopotamia

Neo-Elamite objects of the Louvre Museum

Field WorkPosted by Elynn Gorris Fri, October 18, 2013 14:56:04
On August 30 2013, E. Gorris (UCLouvain) visited the Louvre Museum to take detailed digital images of Neo-Elamite monumental objects, displayed in the exhibition rooms of the Near Eastern Department. These images will contribute to a detailed paleographic study of the cuneiform signs, which will serve as an instrument to determine the chronology of the Neo-Elamite kings. This study frames in E. Gorris’ PhD dissertation on the History of the Neo-Elamite Kingdom as part of Work Package V, “History and Chronology” of the Greater Mesopotamia IAP. Especially the steles of Atta-hamiti-Inshushinak and Shutruru, of which no detailed photographs are published, were taken as the main focus.
