Example text

All of the documents belong to the political elites, and most of them to the royal palaces. This means that the political ideology they re¯ect is the ideology of the ruling class. Two problems should be discussed in this connection, but given the tremendous discrepancy between the limited data and the extensive space for speculation and hypotheses, I will con®ne myself to a few uncontroversial statements. The ®rst problem is that of the addressees of royal propaganda. 30 In fact it is all a matter of degree, and it seems clear that there is an inverse relationship between detail and the spread of the political ideologies.

It is in fact unbelievable that an area where the king freely walks, receives tribute and subdues the people should not be a part of the organized world, whatever the local political system. But is the symbolic achievement a de®nitive one, or will the peripheral area revert to chaos as soon as the king goes back to the central core? This is quite possible in terms of political control but his symbolic achievement will remain in the memory. As long as we remember that land, and it remembers the royal expedition, its place in the world as of®cially de®ned remains secure.

King of Sippar and Babylon' seems a realistic description of his domain (southern Babylonia being already lost), while `king of Dilmun and Meluhha' can but hint at trade with Bahrein and the Indus valley, and tries to compensate for a real retreat by an ideological advance.
