There are seven contributions. T. Abusch, ‘The Promise to Praise the God in Suilla Prayers’, pp. 1–10, attempts to define ‘praise’ from the contextual evidence of these prayers. P. Steinkeller, ‘Of Stars and Men: The Conceptual and Mythological Setup of Babylonian Extispicy’, pp. 11–47, collects a mass of evidence, but the conclusions are at times speculative, as admitted. No evidence is offered for a Babylonian spherical universe, though it is assumed. Also there is no goddess called MaÌ, and ittaÒâ does not mean ‘Come out’. N.
