We thank the Louvre for allowing us permission to photograph this and other texts in its collection and particularly acknowledge the help and patience of Mme. Beatrice André-Leicknam, who directs the Department of Oriental Antiquities in the Louvre. Mention must also be made of the indispensable aid of André Lemaire and Maurice Sznycer of the Institut d’Études Sémitiques The openness and collegiality afforded us by the entire staffs of the Louvre and the Institut constitute a model.
