with Year Names of Apil-Sin and Sin-muballit by Farouk . H. Al-Rawi -- College of Arts, Baghdad University Our knowledge of the history of the earlier parts of the Old Babylonian Period relies to a great extent on the names by which the individual years were identified and the sequence of year formulae established by the date lists collected and studied by Arthur Ungnad in his trail-blazing article "Datenlisten" in RLA 2 (1938) 131--194. As date lists are school texts, the historian will always be wary of the pupil's errors, especially if only one date list is available as is the case with the time of the first kings of the Hammurabi dynasty.1 Therefore a new date list for this period is a very welcome witness to corroborate information read from the earlier exemplar or to cast doubt on them. The tablet to be presented here is the second in a sequence of at least two tablets, the lost first one listing the 14+36 year names of Sumu-abum, the first king of the dynasty, and of Sumu-la-el, whom later generations regarded as the founder of the dynasty. Our second tablet comprised the 15 year names of Sabi'um (now
