This literary text gives an advice to a prince on how a king should behave, with the agenda of securing tax exemptions for the cities of Babylon and Nippur. This clay tablet is a copy which was made between 700-650 BCE, of an earlier composition. From Nineveh, Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. (British Museum in London)
