In these lists, each year is named after an official called the limu, whose main function was to lend his name to the year (eponymously). The Assyrian year-lists are not king lists, though sometimes kings act as the limu. These lists are collected in Alan Millard, The Eponyms of the Assyrian Empire, 910–612 BC (Helsinki: Neo-Assyrian Text Corpus Project, 1994).
