Description: This tablet form the Kuyuncik collection forms the basis for the calculation of the Old Babylonian and earlier Neo-Sumerian period. Although dating to the Neo-Assyrian period, it records obversations of the planet Venus that supposedly date to the reign of the Old Babylonian king Ammisaduqa.
