Title: Transfer of Property at Palmyra
Author(s): CUSSINI, Eleonora
Journal: ARAM Periodical
Volume: 7 Issue: 1 Date: 1995
The present study, a summary of what we know of the transfer of real property at Palmyra, is meant to contribute to current discourse about Palmyra by placing emphasis on the background of Palmyrene legal practice in ancient Aramaic legal tradition, and by investigation of relations, in practice and terminology, to Mesopotamian legal tradition both of remoter antiquity and of the latest period. This study also addresses the interesting hypothesis, recently advanced by H.J.W. Drijvers, that in Palmyrene Aramaic-Greek bilinguals the Aramaic is secondary.
