CM 11 (Chronicle of Enlil-nirari)

The Chronicle of Enlil-nirari is the obverse of a tablet from Aššur that contained an Assyrian chronicle; the Chronicle of Tiglath-pileser I  may have been part of the same tablet. It describes the relations between Assyria and Babylonia during the reign of Enlil-nirari (r.1318-1308).

For a very brief introduction to the literary genre of chronicles, go here.  More information can be found in Jean-Jacques Glassner, Mesopotamian Chronicles (Atlanta, 2004), in which this is text CM 11.
