In the 1980s, a number of inscribed clay and stone objects were discovered along the Middle Euphrates, in the region of Haditha. Among the finds were fragments of tablets and steles that bear official inscriptions of at least two early first-millennium-BC rulers of the kingdom of Sūḫu, Šamaš-rēša-uṣur and Ninurta-kudurrī-uṣur, written in the Akkadian language. These important texts give us a brief glimpse into the history of a small area of the Middle Euphrates region and they provide information not included in the official records of contemporary Assyrian and Babylonian rulers.

This website presents lemmatized transliterations and searchable translations of the known official inscriptions of first-millennium-BC rulers of Sūḫu, together with a few resources and materials for their study and their historical context.
