Critical editions

  • Mathieu Ossendrijver
Part of the Sources and Studies in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences book series (SHMP)


Each edition begins with a header providing the museum number(s) of the tablet or fragment(s), provenience (Babylon or Uruk), date (if known), measures, arrangement of obverse and reverse (O/R: turn around horizontal axis; O–R: turn around vertical axis), published photographs and copies, and a short description of the content. If the tablet is not preserved to full width, height or thickness, the incompletely preserved dimension is always followed by a reconstructed value of the original dimension in round brackets, e.g. 10(12), by a star (*) if this could not be estimated, e.g. 10(*).
