The dynastic affiliation of the family is unknown and all three members of the family are recorded as the successive contemporaries of the Assyrian king Tukultī-apil-Ešarra II.[i 4] Two inscriptions on Lorestān bronze arrowheads are inscribed with the name “Ninurta-kudurrῑ-uṣur” are generally ascribed to the earlier, similarly obscure monarch, Ninurta-kudurrῑ-uṣur I, ca. 987 – 985 BC, to whom Brinkman suggests a possible filiation such as grandfather,[1]:175 while a third possession inscription gives his title as Prince (A LU.GAL) and is thought likely to be this individual, although in fact each of them could refer to either monarch.[3]The Religious Chronicle[i 5] may have been written during his reign, as it ends with events relating to the reign of his father although the only copy that we have is written in the Neo-Babylonian script and is consequently late. His reign was possibly too insignificant to warrant mention in the Eclectic Chronicle.[4]Inscriptions[edit]Jump up ^ Synchronistic King List fragments VAT 11261 (KAV 10) ii 4’ and VAT 11261 (KAV 182) iii 7’.^ Jump up to: a b Kudurru BM 90835, BBSt LXVII, or No. 9, in the British Museum, iv A 30Jump up ^ King List A, BM 33332, iii 16: ITI 8 12 [UD].Jump up ^ Synchronistic King List, Ass. 14616c (KAV 216) iii 10.Jump up ^ Religious Chronicle (ABC 17), BM 35968.References[edit]^ Jump up to: a b c J.
