The texts presented here were discovered by a German expedition to
Ashur, capital of the Assyrians, more than half a century ago. They
have remained in Istanbul, largely uncatalogued and unedited, until
this publication, the first in a series to be prepared under the
auspices of the Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia Project. The
inscriptions speak of the building by the kings of palaces and
temples in various parts of Assyria, of the god who were invoked to
bless the enterprises, and at times of military campaigns and
victories. Transliterations, commentaries, notes, and hand-copies
for the indiviaul texts are provided along with the requisite
indexes to make the volume a basic research tool for
