Pupil's writing TabletLog in to see prices
The somewhat crude quality of this tablet is explained by the fact that it would have been fashioned by an apprentice scribe. It features three lines of writing in the hand of the apprentice's master.
As his skills developed, he would be allowed to graduate to copying works of literature, before culminating his studies in the reproduction of a major text. A great many school tablets have been discovered at Mesopotamian sites of all periods, as well as at Susa, which is farther to the East.
