Ile i-Marduk, descendant of the Eppes-ili family, began work in the vicinity of Babylon as a member of a limited group of court scribes who recorded legal proceedings overseen by the Neo-Babylonian royal judges.1 Later in life he moved from the Babylon region to Uruk, where he advanced beyond his original position as scribe. His career sheds light on the administration of justice outside of Babylon proper, and provides an example of how a career as a scribe was the first step towards a more advanced legal vocation in Neo-Babylonian Mesopotami
