Thiswhich, relate to real-estate in Neo-Babylonia. The term 'real-estate' is understood here to cover all land, vhether under cultivation, built upon, or left undeveloped. The texts cover a wide variety of topics, but selected areas only have been studied. In the first section sale texts have been chosen for the purpose of examining private real-estate; the second section concerns crown land, and the third temple land. Private land:Sale Texts is a discussion of the origin and form of the primary sale text, and of various points concerning the comparative values of land. It also contains a catalogue of all sale texts, plus three appendices which analyse atru payments and land values. The Crown and Temple sections compliment each other to some degree, as close links between the two institutions are revealed. A major part of the examination of crown land is devoted to hansu land, whilst the temple section concentrates on the term qaqqar.
