I1sides t he weaipons menil tion(ed on tllis tlablet there are numerou oether references to divine weapons in omen texts. As Prof. Jalstrow has shown-I, there is a weapon of Ishtar called di-e-pzc, '"the overthrower" (V RI. 6:3, IT. 30), a weapon of Shamash called mno-ak-tuc-rlu perhfaps "the helper," froml kaT.arlu to support. A es(col weapon of Shamash is callledt at-mtc-1i ki-c-, "the faithful w-,ord' (Rlm.2 106), an(d a (doubl-le weapon is cnameld eimltc u aqu, "the mlight.yt storlm' (Stele of Naboniilus, XS, X fl.). As one of the weapons ol' NIN.IB is callhed ct '-ban-iti-illa - imit la padd (cf. above 1. 82), "the m(ierciless storm," and als the double-headed club is the sy biiol of NIN.1f, it is probable that the i7m. aqcl here mentioned is also a weapon or SNX.l t. \e t also findc a " sevenfold cibic," the weapon of Shamash (C. T., XX, -, 3:3-36). '; "fifteen-fold zibul," the weapon of Islita.r (C. T., XX, 48,:3,), a "threefold zibu," the weapon of Sin (C. 'T. XX, 48, 42). Threce other namles appear on the tableut refered to above (C. T.. XX, 42, 33), nalmely, ili-.u-ru,,sltl-mi and i"Ik'tliu KU.,l'. To tihee ima- Ibe aldded a name occurccrilg in the omens of Sargon andl Nara'n-Sin, namely su-ounrt-0i (I\V 11. 3-1, lle. 4). Altogether he e omien texts have thus far fuinished us with sevent.een ncames of div-ince wealpons. Finally divine weapons appear aclso in the heavens.

The fiiidlig of this bouiiiidary stoIIe w-ithlin tlhe confilles of the tellple at. N-ip)ur raises the illtelreting luestion, IIow can -wei explaill its presence there? An eixamnlitiion of the ins-lriptionm.-hows tha t the prie-t to wi]hoim the land w nas granted was Nuskiuillli, tlle son of I p:f1ihbi-Nus1iitu. who wasi oflieially colnnected owithl the Nusku worship at Nipplr' tbeing tlhe pac i.t rpsi or L'U.IE.ZU.AB of Nusiku. IHence the name of this boundary stone contalins tle nale of tlie god Nusku, whliile at the samne time Niusku is invoked in tle curses. This is remalrkable, as it is thus far the only instance of a sepalrtte c e lue beilng uttered inI tile name of Nusku. ]But. the key to thel whole situation lies in the title which is nscribed to Nuskiu. It is batmulll, imy creator." Now, as thle name of the priest was Nuslku-ibnli, lie is evidently playing on his own lnamle. 'his conclusion leads us to the further inference that he himself iwrote tlhe inscriiption. This is at once the explanation of all the peculuitiiies. It expltains the repeated use of the god Nussku il the title and in t cses It furish the r eason for the plot of the lield. It was a measure of precaution, adopted by the priest to locate and describe his land as exactly as possible. It also explains \why this inscription begins with a hymn of Elil. Nusku-ibli, the priest (niak) of Ellil (Col. II, 13; 111, 11), had access to the hymnlological collections of the temple, and by its insertion wanted to glorify his god and place the land and stone under his special protection. Finally we can also infer from it why the stone was found in the temple precincts. It had evidently been deposited I The earliest reference to usku tllat has come to my notice occurs on a sn:al cylinder, dedicated to Nu-sku by a paItesi of Sippur, for tle life of )ungi, king of Ur.

He is called "the sun of his land who makes prosperous his people" ("Samals mali'su imlr.tiammihlu ni.fi, V It. 55, 4)'; "the protector of boundary stones, who fixes the boundaries' ( tnlisir lkwltirrcti miklnnu able,' 1 t. 55, 5); "the king of right who judges a righteous judgnment" ("Sar kiolti t. ( dut mSnari idimo, V 11. 55, 6). The last two statements clearly imply previos lawlesslness andl isorderl, which lie brought to ani einl. 'The titles applied to hiil in tlhe new inscripttion from Nippur poitit even more strongly to a change of dynasty. It is said that " Illil broke the weapon ol hlis (Elil's) eneciy and laid the scepter of his enelmy into his (Nebuc('lhadrzzar's) hand" (Col. II, 4, 5). These statements show that the Ellil cult at Nippur had been nieglecte(d b1 thl pl rev-ious rulersl, th.lt. thlis ieglect hlad roused the anger of l;llil, and tlhat tile dlonlfall of th1e Cassit(e dyn(1 sty was attrib)utedl to it. In perfect agreement with tIlis is tlie fact thatt after Bitilisi.hu no 1m1oumia ueunts ol' Ca'ssite kinugs have been found( at Nipp)ur. But the 1new inslriptiol frolil N\ip)pur is evenl musore explicit in its stateiments ts to th ( causes which l Ied to tli elevation of Nebuchadrezzar to tile throne of IlBablonia. We( are told tlhat it iwas done for a threefol(l piurplosee: "thallt lie might shleplherd Siumsi(er and Akka(l, reliew the.ici(tuaries of thie city of dwellings aild regulate the tithes oof l'kur 1 itdl Nippuri" ((ol. II, 1-3). Here the religious character of thle mioveme ntl iis lainly ii ndicated. Another significant title app)liedl to Nebuelhahdrelzzar is "the one who lays the found(ation o the land," mni7,l i.( i maiti (C(ol. 1 24). As Nebuchadrezzar was not thle first of the!dynasty, it (cn11 hardlly mean "the fon(lder of tlle lylnatty." as Winckler interlpreted it,3 but perhaps I Hanlllllr'u)i 11(,s It csililr title, d,',lai BJibili mlooezi ndrii anra mdauS.' m.rim, u Akkadim, Code V, 4-1). 1 For thei meaning of obl, see G(lossary and Lau, J.A.O.S., Vol. 27, pp. 301f. s Cf.

E., XV, is sufficient to prove the writing with 'b,' as'dbu, 'to dwell.' In view of Su~m-ili-a-s'ip-Ti-uW it is not impossible that the scribe mixed the ideograms for ai~dbu and aladpu (the latter also pronounced aidbn in Babylonian), so that the old translation, 'Good is the exorcism (a3clbau=0adput) of Marduk,' would stand after all." t The goddess Gula is meant, cf. her name dNIN.TIN.BAD-ga =b6tum muballitat miti, see Br. 11084.

The arrangement of the symbols on these two stones is almost identical. The first four symbols of fig. 30 (Anu, Ellil, Ea and Ninbarsag) correspond to the first section of fig. 11, the next three symbols of fig. 30 (Marduk, Nabu, Gula) correspond to the third section of fig. 11, repeating even the curious bust of Gula on a shrine (fig. 1115 and 307) which is found only here. The next six symbols of fig. 30 (winged dragon, Nergal, bird looking backwards, Zamama, winged lion, followed by the mace with the lion head) correspond exactly to section 2 of fig. 11, where we find instead of the last two symbols the winged lion with the twin-headed mace standing on its back. This shows that the winged lion, followed by the lion-headed mace, exchanges with the winged lion having the twin lion heads on its back. The last three symbols of Susa No. 20 are separated from the rest and are found on fig. 16, first view. They are the lamp, the scorpion and the walking bird, which correspond to Nos. 18, 20, 24 on Susa No. 3 (fig. 11). This remarkable similarity of Susa No. 3 (a stone of Meli-Shipak) and Susa No. 20 (an uninscribed boundary stone) cannot be accidental. The latter (Susa No. 20) belongs undoubtedly to the reign of the same king and was made perhaps by the same sculptor. It may also explain why this stone (Susa No. 20) is not inscribed. Perhaps before the inscription could be engraved the invasion of Sutruk-nabunte took place, by which most likely all the boundary stones found by the French at Susa were carried away, for it should be noted that the inscription which this Elamite king put on another monument (see fig. No. 5) states distinctly: "the land of Qarin.... I took and the stele of Me-li-[Shi-pak] I found," see Scheil, D, E. P., IV, p. 146, B. 6, 7.
