The study of the royal inscriptions including the writings of the door hooks are considered the pillars of archaeological studies that shed light on an important aspect of the rich Mesopotamian civilization especially the urban works undertaken by the inhabitants of Mesopotamia. The discovery of these door sockets during archaeological excavations is reflecting great importance in identifying the dates of the buildings and the names of their builders.
From a scientific point of view, the door socket represented an essential joint in performing the function of the door in the construction of building as it works to move the door smoothly through its association with several parts that help to move the door of the constructed building. The door socket traces their historical roots back to the Sumerians and after them are the Akkadians (Babylonians, Assyrians). The kings deliberately wrote down their genealogies and titles that reflected several concepts. Then the kings mentioned their architectural works and their various achievements and here lies their importance from an archaeological point of view in terms of determining the era in which these were built. The buildings as well as the kings or the people who supervised their construction and establishment. In addition to this archaeological importance for our study have a linguistic importance as they introduce us to the preamble formulas that were commonly recorded on these sockets and the stylistic linguistic developments that occurred in them through the ages.
