This is the 6th Amarna letter. In this clay tablet, the Kassite king Burna-Buriash II (in Mesopotamia) corresponds with the Egyptian pharaoh Amenhotep III, asking him to send more gold. Most of the Amarna letters were written in Akkadian cuneiform, rather than the ancient Egypt cuneiform. From modern-day Tell El-Amarna, Al-Minya Governorate, Egypt. Circa 1350 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
