In a house in cD9II, built against the outside of the then-ruined inner town wall, excavators discovered an archive of 22 clay tablets and envelopes, 3 of them written in Aramaic. The texts date to the 7th century BCE. The archive, belonging Aššur-šallim-aḫḫe and others, consisted of loan documents, and other material, such as a juridical document, a letter, and a lump of clay with a seal impression.
