In the years from 1970 to 1985 the "Belgian Archaeological Expedition to Iraq" excavated the remains of the ancient cultural and commercial centers Sippar and Sippar Amnanum. In connexion with this work it was possible to remove twelve human skeletons from the Persian and Hellenistic Period which are described here.
