Summary

5. Competition and Emulation: The Amorite Koine from Dilmun to Avaris, 1800–1550 BC

The establishment of an Amorite koine culture during the second half of the Middle Bronze Age is articulated in the context of intensive and long-distance exchanges of personnel through trade, warfare, and land tenure. Both competition between Amorite dynasties as well as the emulation of elites are discussed as the principal means by which a wide range of traditions were embraced across the Near East in the construction of an Amorite social identity.
