Although the new king list tablet published in this volume is rather small — for it measures only 5.8 X 3.7 X 2.3 cm — and although it has only nine short lines of writing, it is nevertheless of great historical importance. For its first seven lines contain a king list giving the names and the number of regnal years of the first seven rulers of the second Isin dynasty, none of which are completely preserved in Babylonian King List A, hitherto field’s principal source of chronological information concerning that dynasty.
