On August
30 2013, E. Gorris (UCLouvain) visited the Louvre Museum to take detailed
digital images of Neo-Elamite monumental objects, displayed in the exhibition
rooms of the Near Eastern Department. These images will contribute to a detailed
paleographic study of the cuneiform signs, which will serve as an instrument to
determine the chronology of the Neo-Elamite kings. This study frames in E.
Gorris’ PhD dissertation on the History of the Neo-Elamite Kingdom as part of Work Package V, “History and Chronology” of the Greater Mesopotamia IAP. Especially the steles of Atta-hamiti-Inshushinak
and Shutruru, of which no detailed photographs are published, were taken as the
main focus.
