About five months ago, we wrote about (1) the series Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period (RINAP) and (2) the importance of the Neo-Assyrian period for biblical history.
At that time we mentioned a few advantages to having the physical volumes over the digital versions at ORACC (The Open Richly Annotated Cuneiform Corpus), namely, the introductions to the texts and bibliography.
Since then, ORACC has been expanding the RINAP Online to include more resources. Now, you can find the following:
RINAP 1 = Tiglath-pileser III and Shalmaneser V
- RINAP 1 Front Matter (Forward, Preface, Editorial Notes, Bibliographical Abbreviations, Other Abbreviations, Object Signatures)
- RINAP 1 Introduction
- RINAP 1 Scores (When a text appears in multiple copies, the score shows variant readings among the copies.)
- RINAP Sources
- Tiglath-pileser III Text Introductions
- Shalmaneser V Text Introductions
- RINAP 1 Back Matter (Excavation Numbers, Excavation Photograph Numbers, Index of Names)
The same resources are made available for:
The following resources are provided for all three RINAP volumes:
- Index of Museum Numbers
- Index of Excavation Numbers
- Index of Excavation Photograph Numbers
- Texts Listed by Object Type
The following volumes are in the pipeline:
RINAP 2 = The Royal Inscriptions of Sargon II
RINAP 5 = The Royal Inscriptions of Ashurbanipal, Aššur-etel-ilāni, and Sîn-šarra-iškun
In our piece, we listed all the RIM and RINAP volumes. They are also listed on this page.

One thought on “More on Neo-Assyrian Inscriptions”
Very nice resource – thanks for collecting this for all us Neo-Assyrian-philes out there 🙂
