Example text

T h e precise relationship between the hymn and the music is not clear, but an attempt has actually been made to reconstruct this piece of music, and to record it sung to the accompaniment of lyres ( K I L M E R 1974; K I L M E R et al. 1976). For further discussion on the religious aspect of Ugaritian art, see below § 1 3 . 1 2 ( W Y A T T ) and § 1 4 (CORNELIUS). 7 T H E PORT AREA T o the south of Minet el-Beida, in the vicinity of the first discoveries, were located the remains of an occupation which dated from the 14th century (and possibly even the late 15th century) BCE and lasted until the time of the destruction of Ugarit.

T h e owners of some of the houses are known. T h a t of Rap'anu contained a library of texts and had over thirty rooms. T h a t of Rasap'abu, a tax collector, also contained a library, as did the house of an unknown person nicknamed 'the Scholar'. T h e presence of some forty alabaster vessels led to another of these houses being named the 'House of Alabasters'. Evidence of staircases points to the fact that many of the houses would have had an upper storey, where it is probable that much of the living accommodation would have been located.

50 m above the floor, only two were lying under the floor. According to Lombard, the latter probably form an older group, whereas the former belong to the destruction level and had probably fallen from a higher elevation, perhaps an upper storey. 57 T h e dates obtained from the texts point to the time of N i q m e p a ' and later. 58 Miscellaneous tablet finds. For the sake of completeness, a few more clusters of tablets should be mentioned. First, there is the small group of texts found in the centre of Ugarit (Centre Ville) mainly consisting of schooltexts 59 and, second, we have a substantial group of mainly Ugaritic texts from the northern palace at Ras Ibn Hani.
