NEW OLD AND IMPERIAL ARAMAIC TEXTS

 

Since the publication of An Aramaic Bibliography I, many additional texts from the Old Aramaic and Imperial Aramaic have been published or reissued, conveniently now assembled in the work of Dirk Schwiderski, Die alt-und reichsaramäischen Inschriften Band 2: Texte und Bibliographie . Dr. Schwiderski has been kind enough to provide us with a list of his text sigla that do not occur in our first volume. Herewith a table of collations, including links to the texts in the CAL database.
