AbstractThe Assyrian royal texts are considered one of the most important texts developed in the Assyrian ages, taking their style from the Sumerians and Babylonians. They were mostly written on stone and that continued till the modern Assyrian age.
The Assyrian kings paid attention to this type of writings, which was not directed to the King's subjects, friends, and enemies. These writings were not unconcealed, yet they were hidden in secret places, because they were directed to the gods in the first place, as the King was regarded to be the gods' representative on earth.
Finally, this tablet is considered one of the tablets the city of Assyria had had; then it was excavated through the organized archaeological work in the late 2011.
