-//​Abstract//:​ In the palace of Mari, many thousands of accounting texts from the Old Babylonian Period (c. 1850–1600 BC) were excavated and over 6000 of them were published. This case study is related to a Mari official, Ilu-kân, whose name appears in ca. 200 administrative documents. He was the person responsible for receiving deliveries of grain to the Palace. This corpus offers the opportunity to investigate the exact meaning and the importance of administrative terms and (detailed or not detailed) information about the transaction for the study of accounting practices. This complex relationship between measuring, administrative procedures and recording concerns both material and scribal cultures, within their social context. ​
