MetadataShow full item record
The level of analysis undertaken in this study can only suggest the role that Nuzi Ware may have played in the signaling of political identity and relationships in the Kingdom of Mitanni. Yet, this study has brought to the spotlight aspects of Mitannian political organization that have been on the periphery of many analyses of Nuzi Ware as well as studies of the Mitanni Empire. This study used the known data about Nuzi Ware and placed it in an explicitly political as well as social framework, confinning the Empire' s decentralized nature, as well as the important role of local elites in the maintenance of this Empire.
