The creator of this website is deeply grateful to all the readers: not only for giving up their time, but also for their willingness to step into the limelight, and to share their idea of how Babylonian and Assyrian were pronounced with the wider public.

Also to Professors B. R. Foster and A. R. George, who gave permission for their translations of the passages read to be reproduced here.

A debt of gratitude is further owed to Patrick Boyde, Emeritus Professor of Italian in the University of Cambridge, whose active interest in the modern dramatisation of works in Ancient Greek was one of the sources of inspiration for the creation of this website.
