Abstract
Three texts from Ur-Utu's archive- copies of the same royal letter - are connected to a fourth, fragmentary letter preserved in the British museum. According to this letter parents encloistered their daughters so that they did not have to feed them. A royal letter is sent around to stop this practice. At the end of the article it is established through palaeographical criteria that these letters were copied in late Old Babylonian times.
