10th of July 2013

Dear Colleague,

Today is the first of Du'uz in the calendar of ancient Mesopotamia heralded by the appearance of the first lunar crescent at sunset after the summer solstice which I personally witnessed minutes ago.

In such auspicious time I received the long-awaited news from professor Simo Parpola that my book on the Babylonian Astrolabe has been finally printed in the days just preceding the 4th of July 2013 when mighty Aldebaran becomes visible in the solar crown.

This book was in preparation for 5 years - since the Melammu VI symposium in 2008 when I for the first time announced to the academic community my startling discovery that the path-positions of the 36 constellations in the Babylonian Astrolabe date from 5500 BC!

Now, after 5 years in which I wrote 15 versions of the book, the final edition has been printed!

Inside there you will find the amazing discovery of the true history, intent and purpose of many Akkadian astrological texts, many of them translated and explained for the first time.

Be joyful!
