Item description for Urartian Measures Of Volume (Ancient Near Eastern Studies. Supplement) (Ancient Near Eastern Studies Supplement Series) by Margaret Payne...
Urartians recorded the volumes of jugs, jars and storerooms, using a variety of symbols and words. In this book, mathematical and statistical models, both geometric and digital, are examined for evaluating the ratio of the different measures of volume to each other and for finding absolute values for these measures. The presence of full mathematical calculations allows for controls to be made and removes the faith element from this branch of Urartian studies. In doing so, it also provides quantitative techniques that can be used in related archaeological ventures.
