For the convenience of the beginner all the Babylonian texts included in this volume have been transcribed into the Assyrian character. It is of the greatest importance for him to become master of the so-called Ninevite script as soon as possible for almost every work found in Ashur-bani-pal's Royal Library at Nineveh is written in it.
