"State Archives of Assyria (SAA) is a series of critical text editions of Neo-Assyrian texts, primarily those from the royal palaces at Nineveh, but also including some texts from other sites, organized by text genres. Each text is given in transliteration and English translation and is accompanied by a critical apparatus giving references to previous editions, discussions and collations of the text and a limited philological commentary. Each volume contains an introduction that briefly describes the text genre and relates it to its ancient setting, as well as computer-generated glossaries and indices to the texts. Collations of passages that differ from previous copies or readings are also given, and, if possible, hand copies of texts that have not previously been published in copy are also presented. Each volume is copiously illustrated with relevant scenes from Assyrian art or artefacts of Assyrian life." (Quelle:
