Re: orion ORION: Variations

Gentle people--
And also in the cuneiform literature we have substantial evidence that
such autographs were well known to scribal houses.  A number of Assyrian
"Oath Texts," for instance, make clear claim for having been copied from
originals [e.g., KAR.31.Rs.24-28; BAM.50.Rs.22-26; et al].  H Hunger
includes a number of other examples [see Hunger. 1968. Babylonische und
assyrische kolophone. AOAT 2.]
