Re: Inscriptions mentioning Aminu
- Dear Joe,
The Aminu seals come from Ashur. As for the relationship between
Aminu and Ila-kabkabi, etc. you should consult the three following
L.R. Siddall, "The Genealogy of Adad-niari III, the Identity of the
Ila-kabkabis of the AKL and the Status of the 'legitimisation'
Hypothesis", Orientalia 76 (2007), pp. 368-378.
J. J. Azize, "Who Was Responsible for the Assyrian King List?" Abr
Nahrain 35 (1998), pp. 1-27
Wu Yuhong, "Did the Assyrian King List Attempt to Prove the
Legitimacy of Samsi-Adad I?" Journal of Ancient Civilizations 5
(1990), pp. 25-37(?)
