The Babylonian Chronicles

During this time the Babylonian chronicles were written, a recording of events in Babylonia for the remainder of her history. A portion of this has been discovered. This clay tablet is a Babylonian chronicle recording events from 605-594 BC. It was first translated in 1956 and is now in the British Museum. The cuneiform text on this clay tablet tells, among other things, 3 main events:
1. The Battle of Carchemish (famous battle for world supremacy where Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon defeated Pharoah Necho of Egypt, 605 BC.),
2. The Accession to the Throne of Nebuchadnezzar II, the Chaldean, and
3. The Capture of Jerusalem on the 16th of March, 598 BC. [Neo Babylonian Period] Bible History Online
