The Royal Deeds of Ugarit

The Royal Deeds of Ugarit

I. Marquez Rowe analyses the legal transactions found at Ugarit, which are characterized by the involvement of the king, and thus enhances our knowledge of this Late Bronze Age province of cuneiform law. While the texts are predominantly written in Akkadian, some use the Ugaritic language. The Study provides the reader both with an overview of this group of texts as well as with many special examinations of various legal, socio-historical and linguistic aspects.
