The catalogue includes more than 230,000 objects and inscriptions from the Middle East, ancient and modern. There you will also find relevant objects from ancient Egypt and other parts of the world.

The online catalogue is a work in progress. It brings together information from registers, catalogues, card files and other sources. Much information is still to be entered, and many entries require updating, correction or improvement. In addition, not all entries are yet available. The remaining entries will appear soon, however.”
