This is an edition of the Hieroglyphic inscriptions of the Late Hittite states of Turkey and Syria. These inscriptions, surviving largely on stone, include monuments of kings to their reigns and works as well as the humbler memorials of subordinates. A few precious survivals of documents in the form of lead strips give us a different type of document: letters and economic texts. Recent discoveries have improved the decipherment and understanding of these inscriptions to a point where new and comprehensive translations can be offered, and the presentation of this in English will make them available for the first time to the wide audience of the English-speaking world. At the same time we are in a position to present more reliable texts than those which have appeared in editions hitherto regarded as standard.DAREa€ )pia€”iaa€”ta- a#39; As 10 IHLW-aapa-wa/i-n-ta#39; man-ta (DEUS)MONS-tza#39; |1aa-l ail- ia-aa-taa#39;r [[i-{ilia-ti-i As 11 ...
