The remains of a library containing about 280 clay tablets were found in and around Room NT12 the Nabû Temple (Ezida). These text date from 800 BC to 614 BC. The majority of the texts assigned to this archive repository were discovered in Room NT12 and the adjoining courtyard. Some texts, including fragments of seven wooden and ivory writing boards, were found in Rooms NT13 and NT14. This Neo-Assyrian ‘library’ house omen texts (79 tablets), incantation and medical texts (75 tablets), lexical lists (37 tablets), as well as some administrative texts, epics, hemerological texts, hymns, prayers, rituals, and royal inscriptions.
