This clay tablet is part of the Amarna letters. This letter was sent from Abdi-Tirshi (King of Hazor) to Amenhotep III or Akhenaten. Abdi-Tirshi reassures the pharaoh that he is loyal and is keeping his cities in good order. The letter was written in Babylonian cuneiform inscriptions; the writing is complex and parts of many signs are indistinct. 14th century BCE. From Tell el-Amarna, Egypt. (The British Museum, London).
