"The Multabiltu and the Nisirti baruti text collected in this edition," according to U.S. Koch, "represent an intellectual effort to grapple with the more esoteric aspects of the art of the diviner, and they illuminate the workings of some of the more obscure elements of this ancient method of inquiry. (...) These texts can be viewed as a step towards more abstract thinking, though still couched in traditional list form. (...) Multabiltu is the name of the 10th and final chapter of the first millennium extispicy series. Nisirti baruti, 'secrets of extispicy', is a catch-all for texts concerned with various, more esoteric, aspects of extispicy, but which were not part of the extispicy series itself or of the commentaries associated with it." --- U.S. Koch presents complete editions of all published and hitherto unpublished texts of these groups, supplemented by an introduction that outlines the structure, logic and terminology of the texts. The volume contains many copies of hitherto unpublished cuneiform tablets.
