Royal Lexicography: The Lexical Tablets in the Royal Collections at Nineveh

The goal of the Royal Lexicography project is to provide digital access to all cuneiform lexical texts (ancient dictionaries) in the royal library of Assurbanipal (668- ca 630 BCE) at Nineveh (modern Mosul), by linking digital images of the cuneiform tablets with transliterations, translations, and glossaries.
