Amarna Letter EA 12

Amarna letter EA12 is a correspondence written to Egypt by a princess of Babylonia.[1]

A scribe named Kidin-Adad is mentioned within the letter.[1]

This letter is part of a series of correspondences from Babylonia to Egypt, which run from EA2 to EA4 and EA6 to EA14. EA1 and EA5 are from Egypt to Babylonia.[2][3]

During 1888 the Vorderasiatisches Museum received part of the tablet as part of a group of artifacts given to the museum by J.Simon. A second part of EA12 was given to the museum by Felix von Niemeyer.[4]
