This series of studies in Akkadian medical texts is to be considered essentially a collection, not a collection in the sense of an encyclopedia of the history of science, or even an encyclopedia of the history of Akkadian medical literature. At the present point in our knowledge of Akkadian medical literature and of the Akkadian language it is impossible to produce such a work. However it is hoped that in the course of these pages certain difficult and disconnected ideas in various fields of Akkadian medical literature may be joined together so that a clearer picture of Akkadian medical theory and practice may emerge.
