Individual Scholarship


Hans G. Güterbock

Hans G. Güterbock continued to work on the Chicago Hittite Dictionary by oral discussion of existing drafts of words beginning with SH, first with Harry Hoffner, but for the greater part of the period with Richard Beal. During the year, the following articles appeared: a brief communication on "The Tarsus Seal of Puduhepa, Queen of Hatti" in Journal of the American Oriental Society 177 (1997): 143ff., proposing the restoration "daughter of Kizzuwatna, beloved of Hepat"; "Erinnerungen an das alte Bojazköy-Archiv und die Landschenkungsurkunde VAT 7436," in Altorientalische Forschungen 24 (1997): 25-30, dedicated to Horst Klengel. The tablet has traces of imbedded strings to which seals were probably attached. His article "Bojazköy" also appeared in The Oxford Encyclopedia of Archaeology in the Near East, vol. 1, pp. 333-35. He was honored by the publication of his selected papers under the title Perspectives on Hittite Civilization: Selected Writings of Hans Gustav Güterbock (Assyriological Studies 26; Chicago: The Oriental Institute, 1997). He wishes to express his thanks to the editors of this volume, Harry A. Hoffner and Irving L. Diamond, as well as to the volunteers who helped with proofreading in the production of this handsome volume. Güterbock was elected honorary member of the Turkish Academy of Sciences and received (in absentia) an Honorary Doctorate of Social Sciences from Ankara University on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
