This volume brings to completion the publication of the Legal texts of the royal court of Nineveh begun with SAA 6. lt contains texts dated to the reign of Assurbanipal and later, undatable pieces, and some addenda to SAA 6. Together with the administrative texts edited in SAA 7 and SAA 11 and the grants and decrees from SAA 12, the publication or republication of all the "Assyrian Deeds and Documents" of the State Archives of Assyria is now complete.

The Project expresses its thanks to the Trustees of the British Museum for permission to publish texts and illustrative material in their custody, and to the staff of the Department of Western Asiatic Antiquities of the British Museum for their enthusiastic cooperation and assistance.

We are grateful to the University of Helsinki for financial support for the State Archives of Assyria Project through December 31, 2001.
