Roc�o Da Riva provides the reader with a detailed overview of the Neo-Babylonian royal inscriptions that were among the first cuneiform documents discovered in Mesopotamia by early western travellers and scholars: "The scope of this book is to give a brief introduction (...) and to familiarize the non-specialist with this textual corpus without sacrificing the precision an Assyriologist would expect." Her study covers various aspects of these texts: their findspots, the process of their creation, their writing and the language of the inscriptions, questions of chronology, and their structure and contents.
