ARCHAEOLOGY: Picture of Babel?

"A carving of the Tower of Babel has been found on a stone tablet dating back over 2,500 years.
It comes from the newly published book Cuneiform Royal
Inscriptions And Related Texts In The Schøyen Collection.

One of the images shows King Nebuchadnezzar II, who ruled Babylon 2,500 years ago, standing next to a huge ziggurat – a pyramidlike structure dedicated to the god Marduk that some scholars believe is the Tower of Babel of Biblical fame.

Professor Andrew George writes that this drawing is one of ‘the stars in the firmament of the book’.
The depiction of Nebuchadnezzar is one of only four in the world.

Elsewhere in the book is an interesting translation of a 3,000-year-old copy of the law code of Mesopotamian king Ur-Nammu.

Bar tabs were also enshrined in law. If, for example, you told a ‘female tavern-keeper’ to put a beer on a tab in the summer, she could order you to pay a tax in the winter – though it doesn’t specify how much." DailyMail
