With regard to the argument from silence, see my separate posting. My
retinence is based on the history of writing in the ANE.

Yes, I did refer to literature in my second posting (ANEP; ABD, vol.5) in
order to offer you the opportunity to chech the data to which I referred in
my first posting. 

Well, I provide you with the data, where you can find them. You're arguing
in favour of the contrary, so I am at least allowed to ask for some sollid
arguments which would prove the contrary. But if you do not have sufficient
arguments to prove your point, it's okay.
