Une liste paléographique de signes cunéiformes. Quand les scribes assyriens s'intéressaient aux écritures anciennes...

Abstract : Two fragments of a tablet, preserved in the British Museum (London) and the Iraqi Museum (Baghdad), said to be found in Ninveh and Kalhu, show the concern of Neo-Assyrian scribes for the beginnings of writing. This tablet, written during the VIIIth or VIIth centuries BC, belongs to the category of lexical lists. It contains, over several columns, a standard list of cuneiform signs in use at the beginning of the IInd millennium BC and their corresponding archaic - or supposed so - signs at the IVth millennium BC. The analysis of this inscribed object considers the true origin of its fragments, their discovery and conservation, the temple library in which the tablet was preserved and the category to which it belongs, its complete form and the inscribed signs, the author of the document, his training and his views while writing this tablet.
