Product Description

Babylonian School Tablet Professional Reproduction
Babylonian School Tablet Professional Reproduction

Cuneiform writing was invented by the Sumerians, more than 1000 years before this tablet was made. More than five spoken languages used cuneiform writing over the 3000 years it was in use. Students of this time period wrote and learned in Sumerian cuneiform. With simple vocabulary and spelling lessons the student was able to progress to learn more complex subjects, such as the historical Sumerian roots of the Babylonian civilization.

This stone replica was created from a cast of a practice tablet which was made from the original in the University of Pennsylvania Museum. Imagine a hot sunny day 3700 years ago in the city of Nippur, a young boy learning to be a scribe. It was his ticket to a prosperous life in the growing government and religious bureaucracies of the Hammurabi Dynasty of Babylonia. Even the students rudimentary hand print can be distinguished in this professionally cast Babylonian school tablet.

Cast in Resin. The inset picture is of the back.

Diameter: 2.75", Ships in a protective case with information about the tablet. Tag is included, stands are not but are available on Amazon.
