Summary The roughly 5,000 cuneiform tablets from Ebla (3rd millennium BC) attest to the oldest Semitic language and provide insight into a period in the history of Syria that was previously unknown. Their restoration, interpretation, and classification has taken more than thirty years. The essays collected in this volume offer important insight into the history and culture of this ancient Near Eastern city-state.
