Hi, I am a German PhD candidate about to publish my thesis about cuneiform decipherment. The image in post/52580016569 would be a very helpful illustration for my thesis, do you know the source? Or do you know anything about the copyright for this image? Thanks, Nele Diekmann

Hi Nele,

I did a lot of searching to attempt to find the source of that image for you but unfortunately I could not. That being said, I have found it on dozens and dozens of websites as early as 2009. I could not tell you the copyright for it, but the widespread usage on a number of legitimate foreign sites (as legitimate as they can be without sourcing their materials) tells me it might very well be free to use. Best of luck on your thesis!
