Inscription de Behistun

L’inscription[modifier | modifier le code] L’inscription de Behistun, donne le même texte en trois langues, gravée dans une falaise, indiquant l’histoire des conquêtes du roi Darius. Elle est illustrée par des images gravées du Grand Roi et d’autres personnages grandeur nature qui l’accompagnent. Le texte lui-même est une déclaration de Darius Ier de Perse, écrit trois fois en trois écritures et langues différentes : deux langues côte à côte, vieux-perse et élamite, et akkadien au-dessus d’elles.

Darius a régné sur l’Empire perse de -521 à -486. Vers -515, il relate en un long récit son accession au trône face à l’usurpateur Smerdis de Perse ainsi que ses guerres victorieuses suivantes et la répression de la rébellion. PSD: home page. CDLI - Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative. Chaldea. The countries around Chaldea Chaldea and neighboring countries Chaldea or Chaldaea (/kælˈdiːə/), from Ancient Greek: Χαλδαία, Chaldaia; Akkadian: māt Ḫaldu; Hebrew: כשדים‎, Kaśdim;[1] Aramaic: ܟܠܕܘ‎, Kaldo) was a small Semitic nation which emerged between the late 10th and early 9th century BC, surviving until the mid 6th century BC, after which it disappeared, and the Chaldean tribes (not to be confused with modern Chaldean Catholics) were absorbed into the native population of Babylonia. [2] It was located in the marshy land of the far south eastern corner of Mesopotamia, and briefly came to rule Babylon.


During a period of weakness in the East Semitic speaking kingdom of Babylonia, new tribes of West Semitic-speaking migrants[3] arrived in the region from The Levant between the 11th and 10th centuries BC. The earliest waves consisted of Suteans and Arameans, followed a century or so later by the Kaldu, a group who became known later as the Chaldeans or the Chaldees.

Ishtar and Izdubar Index

Who is Izdubar? Izdubar is a literal translation of the ideograph for 'Gilgamesh', and was how the hero of the Gilgamesh saga was known when this book was written in the 1880s. A lexicographic tablet was finally discovered several decades later in which Izdubar was equated with Gilgamesh. When this was written, only fragments of the epic had been found, and Hamilton had to supply continuity and motivation in several cases.

Nevertheless, this constitutes one of the earliest translations of the Gilgamesh saga and is the only complete one (such as it is) known to be in the public domain. Title PageIntroduction Alcove I Tablet I--Column I. Alcove II Tablet V--Column I. ETANA.
