The Old Babylonian Loan Contract

The Old Babylonian Loan Contract
Its History and Geography
Aaron Skaist

A study of the geo-historical distribution of all the loan types as well as of the individual clauses used in the Old Babylonian loan con-tract (c. 1900-1600 B.C.E). It is shown that loan types as well as individual formulas have a limited geographical and historical distribution. Further, it is shown that changes that occur during the lifespan of a formula, e.g., changes of interest rate or modes of guaranteeing loans, are also bounded historically and geographically. From the series ''Bar-Ilan Studies in Near Eastern Languages and Culture''.
