Abstract :
The Berlin letter (VAT 17020) appears to be a Neo-Babylonian copy of a 12th century Elamite royal letter to Bayblonia. The editing of this text by van Dijk in 1986 has had a major impact on Elamite chronology by unveiling a series of marriages connecting Middle Elamite kings with 14th-12th century Babylonian rulers.
